Michael Jordan Lands a Giant Fish in Atlantic City Tournament
Jumpman's in the building! Well, in South Jersey, that is.
Basketball legend Michael Jordan has been seen romping around Atlantic City and Margate over the last few days while gearing up to participate in Jimmy Johnson’s Quest for the Ring fishing tournament. First, he was seen at Steve and Cookie's in Margate, then at the Borgata in Atlantic City where a fan was able to snap a quick pic.
Jumpman hit the water Wednesday for the tournament and, according to Tthe Press of Atlantic City, wound up with a pretty awesome catch.
Jordan reportedly snagged a marlin weighing-in at a solid 70 pounds.
If you think the original Space Jam star was fishing on a run-of-the-mill fishing boat, think again. The boat Jordan and his team boarded a vessel worth an insane $8 million at the Farley Marina located at the Golden Nugget.
If you're wondering whether or not Jordan and his team are on track to win the tournament, know that one of the competitors was able to catch a tuna that weighed almost 300 pounds.
Since the tournament has fish broken out into different categories, Jordan could possibly win in the marlin category depending on what others reel in.
The tournament is set to wrap up with an awards ceremony this Saturday at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
