They didn't enter Level V, or Level VII (Fabulous Fisherman)?

Oops got them mixed up. Eye Catcher only entered Levels I and II. Not sure about Inspiration just know they didn't enter Level VII.

Charter boats and smaller boats I get not entering all categories but a private boat that doesnt do it boggles the mind...

Damn nice fish right there! 3 fish on the first day made weight and that don't happen very often if at all! I don't remember it anyway.

I am in full belief that reef cast and noaa change the forecast for the tournament, we fun fished today bc it was supposed to be "pretty" and it was pretty damn rough. No love from any billfish either

Are you fishing in the Big Rock? If so what boat?

I wouldn't be surprised either... however as hot as the action was from the gate, I wouldn't be surprised if you saw a heifer beat that one....

Might be right. Almost happened in 2011, but one fish, the largest, probably 750-800 pounder, was mutilated and therefore DQ'd. That's the same day Double B weighed the winner at like 654 or something like that, and another one just under 500 if memory serves. LOTTA meat on the docks.

My original prediction was way off. What an unbelievable day. We listened to it for 7 hours in my truck on the way home from OI. We pulled over to watch the weigh in's on the laptop. It was on fire today.

Everyone will still be fishing hard for a $300k five hundred pounder.

There seems to be a lot of big girls out there but 750 will be hard to beat.

I can tell you I'm exhausted from today's fishing and I sat on my ass!! Can't remember a Big Rock that started off this hot in years. Seems like these boats not going all in on the entry is a sign of the continued economic downfall. I bet ten years ago there wasn't a mega boat fishing that wasn't all in. Based on the past few years you have to believe that Eye Catcher was feeling pretty good about his catch. Now that pig may not pay off much at all. Who thinks Carnovore was a little puckered up when he measure that fish at 105"? Ten pounds over is pretty tight!! Keep'em coming boys and be safe!!
