Although the fishing conditions were good, the White
Marlin Open leaderboard did very little changing on the final day. Before final
tallies were made, the WMO retained its usual high release rate of fish, as
there were 689 white marlin caught and released in the five-day tournament while
only 18 were brought to the scales. In the blue marlin category, 39 were caught
and released and only one was brought to the scales.
In photo #1, the ‘Right Hook’ was one of the first
boats of the day to bring fish to the scales.
