Run-Off still leads Blue Rock, Floor Plan moves up standings

Posted June 16

— Through four days of the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament Run-Off remains atop the leaderboard with their Day 1 catch holding strong, but Floor Plan moved up in the standings with a late catch Thursday.

Floar Plan angler James Wright reeled in what turned out to be a 426-pound blue marlin in 21 minutes. The quick catch proved good enough for third place in blue marlin standings and a potential payout of $120,700 from the Big Rock’s record $2,411,650 purse.

Run-Off landed a 533.8-pound blue marlin early Monday and received the $467,500 “Winner Take All” prize from the Big Rock’s record purse. . If Run-Off can hold off the other competitors for two more days, the boat will win a Big Rock record $1,161,450.

Weldor’s Ark still holds second place in the blue marlin standings with a 484.9-pounder. Weldor’s Ark is in position to win $250,720 if it can finish in the runner-up position.

    I am so confused by this article, is the 2nd place boat named Floor Plan or Floar Plan?

    If Floar Plan's catch was the first Blue Marlin since opening day, does Run-Off's Blue Marlin catch on day one not count??
