With millions on the line, boaters fishing Jimmy Johnson’s Quest for the Ring Tournament out of Atlantic City are putting in their final day that will surely result in more changes to the final scoreboards when the scales close tonight.
Basketball legand Michael Jordan was dropped back yesterday to third in white marlin on his Catch 23 as Business took the lead at 73.3 pounds over Blood Money at 73.1.
Bigeye tuna were also being trolled in surprisingly good numbers as Staten Island tuna pro Mike Savino took over first on his Texas Tea with a 227-pounder over Kevin Pintuzzi’s 215 on Random Chaos. East Coast Hookers boated almost identical tuna of 210 and 209 pounds to push back the208-pounder on Hubris. MJ’S was next at 198 pounds, while Kelly Lynn had three bruisers up to 181 pounds.
The fish count through Day 3 was 77 white marlin, 9 blue marlin, 26 tuna, 7 dolphin and 1 wahoo,
I’ll have the official results when available over the weekend.
The Jamaica out of Brielle reported very good bluefish jigging yesterday which included a 13-pounder as well as some sea bass, porgies and fluke. Both plain and tubed jigs worked. Half-night bluefish trips are set for Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
