Businesses Reel In The Sales During Big Rock

While the big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament in Morehead City has a more than million dollar purse, the tournament also means big bucks for the economy and organizations in need.

Businesses along the Morehead City waterfront expect to reel in big sales this week. Some have extra staff on hand to help with the crowds. One business owner told us she saw a 60-percent increase in businesses during the tournament.

Tourism officials along the coast expect the tournament to have a 7 to 8 million dollar impact.

The tournament will also give money to organizations in need in Carteret County.
