This weekend the Swansboro Rotary Bluewater Tournament celebrated its 39th year and saw two big blue marlin brought to Big Rock scales during the three-day event.
The first was a whopping 639.2 lb. blue brought in Saturday on “The General” captained by Wade Fickling for a winning purse of $125,950. The second blue marlin weighed on Sunday was a 445 lb. blue on the 1998 Big Rock winning boat, “Waste Knot”.
“The Swansboro Bluewater tournament is always a “first look” for Big Rock boats that participate in the North Carolina Governor’s Cup events”, commented Crystal Hesmer, Executive Director. “It always gets everyone excited about the Big Rock tournament coming up”.
The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament and the Big Rock Keli Wagner Lady Angler Tournament will begin on June 7, 2019 and run through June 15, 2019. These much-anticipated events will feature seven fun-filled days of fishing and excitement at the scales.
