PORT ARTHUR — for a less important thing than a world record,” Bright said.
“We don’t have officials on the field like you do in baseball or football
or anything like that,” he said.
“Everybody’s playing on the open ocean playing field and since there’s nobody there checking to see if you stepped
out of bounds or any of that sort of stuff there’s a whole lot of
opportunity to do things nobody would know of.”
Bright said most of the fish caught during the three-day tournament were
released, while those that died would be sold at market for seafood and marlin jerky.
