On the marlin side, El Suertudo lived up to its name by taking a chance late in the day on a blue marlin caught by angler Bruce McDonald of California that was very close to the minimum weight of 300 pounds. The fish bit at 4:11 and Capt. Greg DiStefano, realizing that no fish had been boated, put a tape on the fish before putting it in the boat and got a 100-inch measurement from the lower jaw to the fork, signifying the fish had a good chance of weighing in excess of 300 pounds. The measurement turned out to be a true representation and the fish weighed 312-pounds on the scale. This blue took home all the Daily Marlin on the Dock for Day Two and Level IV Jackpot that rolled over from Day One. So far the fish has earned $80,000, and is still leading the Largest Marlin Jackpot since the team that caught the 419-pound black on Day One was not entered into the Largest Marlin Jackpot or the Level IV Jackpot. It also puts team El Suertudo in second place in the Overall Team division.
