      I wish the picture of the Blue Marlin was bigger. I always assumed White Marlin were heavier then what the leader have on the board. According to Wiki they ave 45-65 lbs.

                Will they be accused of cheating again?

                  How can you cheat? Stuff a bunch of weights in the fish?

                      More than one angler could have helped to land the fish which is against the rules. This is what happened last year or the year before, I can't remember. Not sure if it's just the top prize fish angler or all the anglers that place in the money, but they are required to pass lie detector tests before receiving the money.

                        I didn't know that about the lie detectors. I makes sense its a lot money.

                          Yeah, they do the lie detector the day after the last weigh in.

                            When the BIG money is out there; cheating is definitely within reason and does happen.

                              Yeah that lawsuit was the 2007 tournament and tied up in the courts for a year, it was a mess.

                              That current winning blue marlin is only the second fish, in the history of the open, to top 1000 pounds. The leading white is a record of sorts asd well, and caught by a local. I love it when a local wins the tourney.
