Big Rock Day Two

The crew aboard "Inspiration" brought in 437.7-pound blue marlin Tuesday.  That fish is now in second place at Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament in Morehead City.  The boat got back to the weigh station just before 2:00 p.m.

On Monday, "Flybuoy" brought in a blue marlin weighing 499.3 pounds.  That was just shy of a $250,000 prize that the crew receives if they bring in the first 500-pound marlin.
