Hatteras Adds Three to the 500+ Club



Hatteras, NC – The Hatteras Village Offshore Open did not start with a bang, but it sure ended with one. Through 2-Days of fishing only a handful of Billfish were seen and released, but that luck changed on Day 3 when the weighmaster got busy with six (6) Blue Marlin brought to the scales. Upgrade started the day with a 464 lbs. Blue Marlin, Release added a 494 lbs. Blue Marlin, but shortly after that Hammer Time put up a 645 lbs. Blue Marlin to take the lead in the Largest Blue Marlin Division. They could not rest easy however as there were three more Blue Marlin to be weighed. Less than an hour later, Double B came in with much anticipation, weighing a 607 lbs. Blue Marlin, but that was not enough. Two more Blue Marlin were weighed, but neither challenged Hammer Time’s fish with  a 530 lbs. Blue Marlin on Coverage and a 450 from Marlin Gull.

In the Level 1 Division, Cat Baby took 1st Place with 3 Blue Marlin and a White Marlin and Coverage came in 2nd with 2 Blue Marlin and a White Marlin.
