NORTH CAROLINA -- Fishermen took to the sea Saturday for the final fishing day of the 60th Annual Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament.
- Seven blue marlins came in for weigh-ins
- Saturday, 122 boats were on the water
- Honey Hush still holds first place with a 518 pound blue marlin
The event ended with a bang as seven blue marlins came in for weigh-ins.
Tournament officials say it's rare to see so many fish boated in one day.
The last time it happened was back in 2003, when seven blues came in for weigh-ins.
Saturday, 122 boats were on the water in hopes of snagging a top spot on the leader board.
"It's been pretty good," stated Raleigh Resident Stephen Moore. "I think a lot of people were expecting it to be over with earlier in the week, seems to be a lot of boats out on the water for the sixth day."
Honey Hush still holds first place with a 518 pound blue marlin, Fender Bender in second with a 514 pound fish, and Carterican is in third with a 500 pound marlin.
