Amazing Grace, a Venezuela-based team, released the fleet's first blue marlin of the day to bring their total to three, then Capt. Tim Richardson's Chaser released a blue, their fourth of the tournament. A bit later, Fa-La-Me had a release to maintain their lead. Then Amazing Grace went on a strong run, releasing five blues in just two and a half hours of fishing to give them six for the day. The team lived up to their name, moving from ninth place into first with one blue marlin ahead of Fa-La-Me, while Chaser went from seventh to third place overall. Chaser angler Garrett Penley was the event's top angler.
