The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament is known as one of the biggest fishing events in the country.

Fittingly, Michael Jordan entered this year’s 62nd installment of the annual tournament and made an immediate impact.

Jordan and the crew on his boat, “Catch 23,” reeled in a 442.3-pound blue marlin on Tuesday, the second day of the tournament in the basketball great’s home state of North Carolina.

Video captured “Catch 23” pulling in toward the docks in Morehead City, North Carolina.

When Jordan emerged onto the back deck of his 80-foot Viking, the crowd started cheering and whistling.

The marlin then was hoisted up for the weigh-in and came in with an official listing of 442.3 pounds, drawing even more cheers as Jordan and his crew took pictures from behind, cigars in hand.
