The final day of fishing at the Edisto Governor's Cup saw most of the fleet go fishing, and it was Showtime, a 62-foot Spencer fishing out of Toler's Cove that took home dual titles. Showtime was the only boat to release multiple billfish on Day One with one blue marlin and one sailfish, and they followed that up with another blue marlin and sailfish release on Day Three. Showtime claimed the Edisto Gov. Cup title and unofficially has the most overall points in the entire Gov. Cup Series. Congrats! Finishing in second place at Edisto is Rascal which released two blue marlin and one sailfish, barely edging out Game On which finished in third place based on time of release, when they released two blue marlin and one sailfish on Day Three. Only one change came to the meatfish leaderboard when angler Kyle Clark weighed in a 21.2-pound tuna while fishing from Trash Man. The Day Two 61-pound wahoo for Day Maker and 38.2-pound mahi for Can't Complain held up just fine.
