Day 3 RECAP!

230 of 266 boats fished on Day 3 of the 64th Annual Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament presented by Jarrett Bay Boatworks. The hefty fleet racked up 34 Blue Marlin, 11 White Marlin, and 5 Sailfish. LIGHTS OUT captured the Gregory Poole Marine First Release of the day earning them $5,000 within the first 30 minutes of fishing.

The 64’ Jarrett Bay, BUILDER’S CHOICE brought the only Blue Marlin to the scales. The 479.7lbs fish didn’t make the leaderboard, but it was the experience of a lifetime for Big Rock Big Hero Matthew Michalowicz. Special thanks to Salt Life and the Huddle family for welcoming our hero.

STREAM WEAVER captured the Level VIII Daily Release prize worth $37,541.67. The crew also deployed an IGFA satellite tag that will track the Marlin’s movement for the next 240 days. The data will then be interpreted by researchers at Stanford University to further conservation efforts.

ROYAL FLUSH claimed the Level IX Non-Sonar Release prize worth $42,854,17.

Country music star Walker Hayes kicked off Gamefish weigh-ins at Big Rock Landing- presented by Beaufort Hotel. DESPERADO rocked the scales with their 131.2lb Yellowfin Tuna – the first tuna to hit the scales in this year’s tournament! If the fish holds on, they could potentially walk away with $7,000 in prize money.

OFFSHORE III brought a 27.7lb Dolphin to the scales, earning them $2,000. WASABI landed 2nd in the daily Mahi division. J&B’S 29.5lb catch remains in the lead for the Dolphin WTA prize of $527,000.

LADY DIANNE brought their lady angler, Lauren Good, to the scales with an impressive 54.8lb Wahoo. The outboard-powered WIRED ASSETS brought in a 20.7lb Wahoo, claiming $1,000 in daily prize money.

MERCENARIA remains in 1st Place with their 572.6lb Marlin potentially worth $3,489,813.
