It was an exciting day at the 42nd Annual White Marlin Open scales on Wednesday.  Harbor Island was packed as everyone waited to see what the 280+ boats that fished would bring back to the scales.  There were some leaderboard changes and an awesome white marlin by a lady angler.  Here’s how Wednesday went down.

There was a new 3rd place tuna caught on board the Pez Machine that weighed in at 155 pounds.

There was a beautiful 42 pound mahi that took over 1st place in the dolphin category caught on the Tra Sea Ann.

The big story of the day was the white marlin that was weighed in by the Backlash and female angler Cheryl McLeskey.  The big white weighed in at a whopping 94 pounds and is the third largest white marlin ever weighed in the history of the White Marlin Open.  The Backlash’s fish is currently worth $1.2 Million.  What an awesome catch!
