There were new leaders in two categories, but Taylor Jean from Brielle survived again with the 72-pound white marlin from the first day that could be worth over a million dollars though they did so by a mere two pounds as Texas Tea weighed a 70-pounder to take over second place. Goin In Deep from Fort Lauderdale brought in an amazing double of leaders as their 184-pound bigeye took the tuna lead from Big Dog's 126-pounder for a potential 542,004 -- and their first eligible blue marlin of the contest (400-pound minimum) was an unbeatable 680 pounds worth a possible 721,826.
