Ken Strickland and his 40.4-pound mahi
ALmost all of the 32-boat Gov. Cup fleet went fishing for Day Three of the Carolina Billfish Classic. The fishing conditions were much improved, with a hot bite, and a flat calm ocean. Billfish releases came in bunches, and plenty of mahi hit the scales as well. Chasin' wins the 2013 CBC based on their Day Two blue marlin release, followed up by a Day Three white marlin release and a Day Three sailfish release. Congrats to owner Smythe McKissick and Captain Bennett Griffin. Other Day Three billfish releases include Sportin' Life with one blue marlin and one white marlin released. Streamweaver and Cacique each released two sails apiece on Day Three, and Micabe release one white marlin. Legacy released a blue marlin and a sailfish on Day Three. Other billfish releases were still being tallied as the scales closed at 7 p.m. A change in the heaviest mahi category came when Ken Strickland weighed-in a 40.4-pound dolphin for the Wildlife! The Day Two wahoo weighed-in at Georgetown held up, an nice 55.5-pound HOO. The tuna leader continues to be Frayed Knot.
