The scales closed at 9, and they needed the rest as there were big changes right up to the end. Jeff Merrill’s official wrap-up hasn’t been published as yet, so I’ll provide fthe highlights.
The abundance of big blue marlin continued, and hit a peak at the end with a 657-pounder on Low Profile.
Michael Jorden started in first in white marlin and a $1.6 million payout on his Catch 23, but that category filled in — and his 73-pound leader was displaced by Kaarma with a 75-pounder for the biggest money. Special Situation set a tournament record with a 104-pound wahoo!
If Jeff’s wrap-up doesn’t come in shortly, I’ll publish it early in the morning. It takes time to sort out millions in earnings.
