BIG ROCK: No blue marlins boated on day 5

MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. (WITN) – Day 5 was a bummer as no blue marlins were caught on the next to the last day of the Big Rock Blue Marlin Fishing Tournament.

Boats can only fish for four of the six days of the tournament and 186 boats chose to stay put today.

The National Weather Service said boaters were facing 3 to 5-foot waves and winds blowing from the North East at 5 to 15 mph, along with the chance of showers and isolated storms today.

Yesterday was the third day in a row that no marlins were caught, and the standings haven’t changed since Monday.

‘Game Time’ remains at the top of the leaderboard with a 516-pound catch on Monday. If their lead holds until Saturday they will take home more than $1.8 million.

In second place is ‘Release’ with their 504-pound catch, also on Monday. That catch, being the first over 500 pounds, won over $1.7 million in the Fabulous Fisherman category.

This is the 66th year for Big Rock, which lasts until Saturday.
