Catching The Big One Isn't Always Easy!

Day one of the 47th Annual Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament off the North Carolina coast is now in the history books. Hundreds of anglers set out early Monday morning in their quest to find the biggest blue marlin fish that's worth well over 1 million dollars! While some were able to return to shore with a marlin Monday evening, others had obstacles in their way. Junior Johnson, Captain of the Morehead City based fishing boat "Live Wire" had to deal with sea grass more than 50 miles off the coast, making it difficult to reel in anything. However, they did come back with a Dolphin... Something the Johnson said would end up on his dinner table!
