The scales just closed at Day 2 of the MidAtlantic, when the big news was the movement in the big money white marlin division. Judge took over first with a 68-pound entry that was just one pound more than Sea Mistress had the first day. Auspecious moved into third at the 65-pound minimum, and several boats weighed legal length whites that fell just short.
Not surprisingly, there was a new wahoo leader as Chain Reaction had a 35-pounder to move ahead of yesterday’s 29-pounder by Special Situation. In the dolphin category, Top Dog matched Reel Estate’s 33-pounder. Dem Boys remained well ahead in tuna at 96 pounds, but Sushi moved into second at 80 pounds — pushing Blue Runner to third with yesterday’s 79-pounder. Lucky Lady Jean boated a 77-pounder for fourth. I’ll pass along Jeff Merrill’s official report in the morning.
