In a classic case of the underdog prevailing, J.J. Tabor and his team aboard Double J, a 37-foot Freeman catamaran, took the Grand Championship title Saturday in Orange Beach, Alabama, after landing a 716.6-pound blue marlin. Double J was 300 miles from The Wharf Marina when the fish was boated. Making the scales deadline with less than 20 minutes to spare after two fuel stops (the pump was broken at the first), the team earned $266,907 for the first-place tournament award and optional cash entries. The 58-boat Championship fleet, with an average length of 57 feet, was competing for $1.4 million in total prize money. Pelagic High Performance Offshore Gear was the presenting sponsor of the fourth annual event.
