Meanwhile $552,500 is up for grabs for the boat which will be the first to catch a blue marlin over 500 pounds.

A delighted Jordan said he was grateful for having been invited to participate in what is the oldest sport fishing tournament.

“It’s been a while since I’ve been back in Morehead City. It’s only about 100 miles from Wilmington, and it’s always great for me to be able to come back,” he said.

“I’m happy to be back. Thank you for inviting me,” Jordan added, before taking the opportunity to sign some autographs for the cheering fans.
