Big Rock Tournament

In Morehead City, NC they are having the Big Rock Tournament.  It is a total release sailfish competition. The big money is for the boats that catch Blue or White Marlin.  There are other fishing categories as well. The winning boat last year was a Viking 62 and they hooked a Blue Marlin that weighed 680 pounds. Their winnings totaled $560,500. The picture above shows some of the big boats that come to Morehead City for the tournament.

  1. That is a perfect picture that any sportsman will. It’s that time of day just before dawn when excitement fills their hearts, visions of the biggest catch fill their heads and an excitement that is tangible that you can almost touch it. I love that time and that excitement and I love your picture for capturing those memories. Thanks, Jade!

  3. I’d love to catch a marlin! Or at least participate in the thrill of it all…lovely boat scene. ‘Tis a shame they have to bring in the fish to weigh it; I’d rather someone just photograph it, show that to the judges, and let the fish go!
