NEWS: Marlin World Cup Championship winner

Top angler Kevin Gaylord off Bermuda waters caught the winning 668 lb - 302 kg Atlantioc blue marlin aboard the 77 foot "Blank Check" with Captain Hearn Danny at the controls.

Prize money totaled over $ 300,000 for the single heaviest marlin in the one day world event. In this Championship Cup there is no second place.

After "Blank Check" ended fishing  in their time zone, they had to sweat out the fishing action in later time zones to see if their catch would hold up to win.

In the final western most time zone, a fleet of 42 fishing boats left Kona, Hawaii (US) determined to top  Kevin 'sblue marlin. The team aboard "Medusa" came close when they weighed in a 660 lb  blue marlin.
