46th Annual White Marlin Open Starts 403 Boats and 6.1 Million Bucks
The 46th annual White Marlin Open starts Monday. The excitement this year has been Michael Jordan’s boat, The Catch 23, entered into the WMO, and earlier this week arrived in OCMD. To a barrage of media speculation and social media flooded with photos.
Now everyone wants to know if Michael Jordan will be here, yes, he flew in last night, according to sources. I don’t know if he came to fish, but from what I know of the man from my days in North Carolina, he is rather competitive.
The other big news is 403 boats have entered to compete for a purse of 6.1 million dollars. That is the largest number of boats and prize money ever. Already setting records the day before the tournament starts. The next record we will all see is bar tab at some point.
Good luck to everyone fishing in the White Marlin Open this week, I have a lot of friends who entered, I hope you all do well. You can follow the scales’ action online at .. White Marlin Open Live.
