Day One of Weigh-Ins at 12th Annual ECBC

By  | 

Destin, FL---Day one of weigh-ins for the 12th annual Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic is in the books.

All 77 boats had the option of weighing in their catches from 4-10 PM Friday, yet only one came through though.

The vessel is named "Reel Obsession", coming from Columbus, Georgia. It's team showed off a great dolphin fish catch Friday night of 42.2 pounds.

The average winning weight for that fish class is about 29 pounds. So angler Walter Stahl looks like a safe bet for the $94,500 prize for that class, which is just part of a record 1.68 million dollar purse for the event.

The other 76 boats will weigh-in tomorrow, same time at the Baytowne Marina.

It's confirmed there is a blue marlin on one of the boats set to be weighed in tomorrow.
