The 56th annual Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament crown goes to Inspiration.
The 754.3 pound blue marlin took the lead late on Monday and didn't look back. It's the third largest blue marlin in big rock history. The competition heated up at the end as Tidal Volume reported a hooked blue marlin about 20 minutes before lines were to come out of the water. However, Tidal Volume released its blue marlin, making inspiration the declared winner.
Eye Catcher came in second at almost 607 pounds. Ava D finished third with a 491.4 pound blue marlin.
Inspiration will receive roughly $306,000 from the $1,395,825 purse.
