With so many blues and striped marlin being released, the race for the top release boat prize was tight. Sea Angel took an early lead on day one, when the team released four blue marlin to clinch the Day One Daily prize of $8,700. Sea Angel's heartbreak occurred day three, when angler Austin Angel hooked a 500-plus pound marlin at 9:20 a.m. and fought the fish until 3:55 p.m. before pulling the hooks. Sea Angel wound up in fourth place in the Overall Release category. The Sea Angel team includes Capt., B.C. Angel, Austin, Chance and Greg Angel, Juan Carlos, Federico Ortega and Nolan Ruaunswinter.
