Overall, according to tournament director Capt. Paul Cameron, more than $60,000 in cash and prizes were awarded. Documenting the action was legendary angler Larry Dahlberg, whose 'The Hunt For Big Fish' airs on the NBC Sports Network.

'There was an incredible turnout of anglers and despite some high winds the first day, everyone had a great time competing and enjoying the camaraderie of fishermen and fisherwomen,' said Michael Weber, BBGC General Manager. 'Along with our great food and drink this made for a record breaking weekend for the Big Game Club’s Wahoo Smackdown III.'
