CARTERET COUNTY - The crew aboard "Inspiration" brought in 437.7-pound blue marlin Tuesday. That fish is now in second place at Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament in Morehead City. The boat got back to the weigh station just before 2:00 p.m.
On Monday, "Flybuoy" brought in a blue marlin weighing 499.3 pounds. That was just shy of a $250,000 prize that the crew receives if they bring in the first 500-pound marlin.
