Almost the entire fleet sailed on the opening day of the 46th White Marlin Open at Ocean City, Maryland.
Two eligible whites were weighed as Chasin Tail had a 74-pounder, and Reel Chaos a 70-pounder.
There were no big tuna, but Bar South took the lead at 77.5 pounds, followed by M.R. Ducks at 72 and Eastbound at 69. There was no dolphin leaderboard posted, but Hellsea had the early lead at 22.5 pounds. I saw Top Notch weigh a 27-pounder on the Marlin Cam. There were no blue marlin or wahoo weigh-ins.
