After a three-year build, Big Oh launched from the Scarborough yard in North Carolina in summer 2007 and headed straight to the fertile waters of Venezuela with Capt. Ronnie Fields at the helm, where the release numbers started ringing like an overactive cash register. Ingram and Fields then headed for St. Thomas the following summer, and the blues continued to crash the spread. They quickly passed 200 blue marlin releases before transiting the Panama Canal and heading for the Pacific Ocean, where Big Oh racked up releases in Panama, Costa Rica and Guatemala. A stint in Cape Verde from 2013 through 2015 produced the majority of their fish, though, with the team tallying more than 900 blue marlin in three short seasons, including Ingram's 1,254-pounder. He released his 1,000th personal blue marlin off Cape Verde near the end of the 2015 season.
