MidAtlantic Tournament, August 23, 2021—It was indeed a tournament for the ages! The 30th MidAtlantic wrapped up last night and saying it was one for the record books would be an understatement! Records were set in several categories including two before the first day of fishing when a tournament record field of 203 were entered breaking the previous record of 183 set last year.
White Marlin Open, Aug. 4, 2021—While there were some changes in the leaderboard after the second day of the 2021 White Marlin Open, the 82.5-pound white marlin caught Monday by angler Mike Atkinson off the Fender Bender both from Virginia Beach, VA is still the big story. Atkinson is winning $4.9 million dollars and if it holds, the catch of that fish could be among the top prize money payouts in all of sports!
White Marlin Open, Aug. 3, 2021—The $9.2 million purse has already started to be divided up after only one day of fishing. The purse is, as expected, weighed more heavily to billfish categories and two Virginia Beach boats are holding onto $5,700,000 of that purse after day 1 of 2021 the White Marlin Open.
