$1.3 Million Bigeye On Day 1 of the 2022 White Marlin Open

I just got back from a pretty busy first night of scales action at Harbor Island for the start of the 2022 White Marlin Open and it was an exciting time where bigeye tuna dominated the action.  There were 0 white or blue marlin weighed, but there were several yellowfin, multiple bigeye, a few mahi and two wahoo.  There is already a bunch of money going out and totals could grow as the week moves on.  Don’t forget to check out the Hooked on OC live broadcast at the home of the White Marlin Open    www.WhiteMarlinOpen.com

Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star had some good fishing today that included sea bass, mahi and flounder.
