It’s been an equally busy and beautiful week for the White Marlin Open so far! We’re rooting for our Indian River teams Fin-nominal, currently holding first place for dolphin (50 lbs), and Canyon Hunter, currently in second for the wahoo (55 lbs). Reel in those trophies, guys!
Fish have been hitting the docks like crazy this week. Check it out!
