Last Day At The Scales For The White Marlin Open 2021
Will the record White Marlin Payout be broken today?
This morning 402 boats headed out for the last fishing day for the 2021 White Marlin Open. If a lot fish are chewing, and they can qualify, the scales are going to be busy! Much better conditions offshore today. I know aot of guys werre prepping yesterday for today. The current and only white marlin on the leaderboard is 82.5 pounds, worth 4.9 million dollars. Caught on Monday by Mike Atkinson from Virginia Beach, VA aboard the Fender Bender. You can check out the White Marlin Open leader board on the website.
It will be exciting to watch the Marlin Cam today when the scales open at 4 PM. I prefer that view, rather than fighting the crowds to catch a glimpse of the fish brought to the scales. Not to mention sitting in the air conditioning, or while I am at the beach surf fishing today. It is getting brutal hot out here right now, the air conditioning is looking better and better..
Been a wild week of weather and one boat that sank and the crew rescued by another competitor. Hope to see those folks honored for that as well.
