This afternoon in Orange Beach, the Quick Time boat brought in what they thought could be a new state record Blue Marlin. It did not get the record, but it is still a big fish!

The Blue Marlin weighed in at 806 pounds. That’s about 40 pounds short of the Alabama State Record, which is 845 pounds.

The weigh-in was part of the annual Memorial Day Fishing Tournament for the Mobile Big Game Fishing Club. The weigh-in was held at Orange Beach Marina.

Quick Time wasn’t only 40 pounds short of the state record, but a $1 million grand prize that was offered as part of the tournament for a new state record.
