For Immediate Release
August 23, 2014
The 2014 MidAtlantic tournament came to a close last night and the 23rd edition of sportfishing’s “Main Event” was just that and will indeed be talked about around the docks up and down the east coast and beyond for a long time! Tournament week saw nearly perfect weather conditions and the movement of a Gulf Stream warm water eddy spread nutrient-rich cobalt blue water and bait from the Wilmington to the Washington canyon and lit up the billfishing at a record-setting pace. Numerous tournament records were also set including a $2.4 million purse and a new blue marlin weight record!
