June 14, 2011 by staff
Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, It was a great day for the opening of the 53 Great Rock Blue Marlin Tournament. Three great blue have been brought to the docks – only two of which, however, may be hard Monday. Agua Azul was the first boat with a blue marlin that tipped the scales at 580.6 pounds. However, the double B beat with a blue marlin of 652.8 pounds at 4:15 pm Both were larger than last year’s winner, a 528-pound captured by Carnivore. The tournament continues through Saturday. The double B, which is out of Manteo, is owned by Harry Smith and captained by Kenny Sexton. Travis Stephenson, a fisherman from Washington, North Carolina, marlin captured shortly after noon on the only day he had planned to fish this week.
“We have our team back out tomorrow,” said Stephenson, “and if they (other boats) we get, we get.” Blue Water, which is based in Greenville and is owned by James Hite and captained by Greg Hall, the needle board at 11:52 and got to the docks around 14:49 Jeffrey Gregg of Boca Raton, Florida, called the needle. “It feels great,” said Hall, who lives in Morehead City. “The local boys in the local pier are catching fish. That’s what I always wanted. There are plenty of good fish here.” Brought trophy blue marlin, but the fish were on the floor and could not be heavy. Furthermore, Bizzy B, who is captain of Kinston by Rob Bizzell, lost a needle after a 3 1/2-hour battle on a hook shot at 5:20 pm The tournament this year attracted 135 boats (125 of whom fished Monday), down from 155 boats last year. However, the total purse for the tournament will be more and 1 million for 14 consecutive years, but will be less than 1,464,925 years and past. The winner of this year, however, could still pocket and 809,125 if the vessel is registered at all levels in the tournament in a week. “It always feels great to go further and 1 million,” said tournament director Hesmer glass. “I have a silver dollar bank bag containing the bag of the first and 250. I remember so far this tournament has come.” Meanwhile, the flap Hunter won the 14th annual Lady Keli Wagner fisherman after catching (and releasing) a sailfish is worth 125 points exactly one hour on a Saturday tournament. A total of 67 fishing boats in the KWLA.
