The Big Rock Landing was thrilled to host the 38th Annual Swansboro Rotary Club Memorial Day BlueWater Tournament.
Captain Mike Webb brought in the largest blue marlin aboard the Pelagic from Atlantic Beach, NC. The winning fish weighed in at 562 pounds on Saturday afternoon.
The tournament is the Rotary Club’s single largest fundraising activity, the proceeds from the Blue Water King Mackerel Tournament are dispersed throughout the community by way of scholarship funds, community funds, and fishing interest funds. The community pitches in to help the now more than seventy members of the Rotary with many of the projects, including the fishing tournament. They enlist the help of local residents, students, boy and girl scouts, and many others to help with the various needs of the tournament from cleaning fish to cleaning up.
