The 3.5 Million Marlin

In today's episode I am joined by my local friend, Bailey Gore, who was recently caught up in the wild fishing controversy of the Big Rock Fishing Tournament this past weekend. 

"After careful deliberation and discussions between the Big Rock Rules Committee and Board of Directors with Biologists from both NC State CMAST and NC Marine Fisheries biologists as well as an IGFA official, it was determined that Sensation's 619.4 lb Blue Marlin is disqualified due to mutilation caused by a shark or other marine animal. It was deemed that the fish was mutilated before it was landed or boated, and therefore, it was disqualified," 

If you want to hear from the angler himself who reeled in this monster of a marlin and missed out on millions, check out this episode
