There was some pretty crappy weather at the scales tonight for day three action of the 46th Annual White Marlin Open, but we did see some fish. There were some near misses like a blue marlin that just missed the minimum length requirement of 114″ and a couple of dolphin that just missed the daily dolphin calcutta by just 1/2 a pound, but there were also some hits like the new small boat tuna leader that is looking at about $100,000. It may have been a dreary day at the scales, but it was another good one, and there are still 368 fishing days left so Thursday and Friday should both be busy. Here’s who’s currently winning what after three days of fishing.

Outside of the tournament there wasn’t a whole lot going on. Teams coming to the scales this evening said that the ocean was rough today so most non tournament boats stayed tied to the dock. The chance of afternoon thunderstorms and rain kept most bay anglers indoors watching the live broadcast of the tournament. However, last night Captain Marc Spagnola of Dusk to Dawn Bowfishing went into vampire mode and the houndfish and rays didn’t stand a chance.
