A 92-pound white marlin that tied the tournament record turned out to be worth $699,307 in the Mid-Atlantic $500,000 contested out of Canyon Club Resort Marina in Cape May during late-August. That white was brought in the last day to the satellite location of Sunset Marina in Ocean City, Maryland by Susan McCart's Reel Joy, skippered by Capt. Dale Gurgo. Capt. Bob Watson had put Frank Bongiorno's Dealers Choice from Staten Island into first the day before in the "fish three out of five days" contest with an 88-pound white that was still worth $124,955 for second. Barry Washnak's Miss Annie was pushed back to third with a 79-pound white that earned $68,747. Adam Demeusy's Impulse V boated a 719-pound blue marlin the first day, and that catch stood up to win $193,622. Joseph Bernert's Kwik Raze boated a 625-pound blue on Day 4 to move into second place that was good for $124,955. Joe Giafaglione's Atomic found a 501-pound blue on the last day for third place and $62,477.
