2010 Carolina Billfish Classic - Day Three

Daymaker of Georgetown built on its Day One lead by releasing four sailfish on Day Two of fishing - giving them 1500 points and the lead at the CBC. While Daymaker will stay in port today having used its alloted fish days, the majority of the Governor's Cup fleet will head back into the choppy and rough ocean to resume fishing for blue marlin. A total of eleven sailfish were released on Day Two by the 13 boats that elected to fish. Game On and Caramba each released two sailfish, while Rascal, Jabez and Compromise IV each released one. A blackfin tuna came to the scales and weighed 8.2-pounds and belonged to Carl Ulm fishing on the Jabez. Caramba sent an even smaller blackfin to the weighmaster that weighed .8-pounds - but it was said to have put up one helluva fight! Bubba Roof from Game On weighed in a 25-pound dolphin. Evening activities at the Charleston Harbor Resort included a fundraiser for the SC Memorial Reef, that took place under cloudy skies - but the strong seabreeze held the rain just inland.
