It’s become a regular occurrence to see the basketball great on his boat. So its just another day when Michael Jordan fishes in Ocean City. Or is it? The basketball legend once again fished the Eastern Shore and this time walked away with a spot on the leaderboard!
The Huk Big Fish Classic once again saw some dramatics as anglers reeled in their fish. The fisherman competed for over $1 million dollars in prizes.
It’s no mystery that Michael Jordan loves his fishing. And spotting him on his boat has almost become commonplace. So it was very cool to see the Hall of Famer sit atop the leaderboard even for a short time.
MJ was spotted in Salisbury last week and proceeded to fish day 2 of the 3-day competition. His boat, aptly named Catch 23, had an impressive haul of fish. His crew reeled in one swordfish, a yellowfin and two big eye tuna. The swordfish landed MJ atop of the leaderboard, weighing in at a nice 91.5 pounds. WOW!
Michael would sit on the top spot for a good chunk of the day until a 170.5 pound swordfish would swoop in. Michael and team would eventually drop to 2nd in the swordfish competition according to Delmarva Now.
If you missed Michael Jordan and his Catch 23 boat, don’t worry. The entire crew is slated to fish the annual White Marlin Open. This will be MJ’s fourth year competing in the open.
The open will run from August 6-11th.
So if you want to see one of the greatest basketball players ever, head down to the beach as once again Michael Jordan fishes in Ocean City.
