It wasn’t the biggest catch of the day but it sure got the most attention!

NBA legend Michale Jordan and his Catch 23 crew reeled in a 442.3lb blue marlin on the second day of the 62nd Annual Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament in Morehead City, North Carolina on Tuesday.

Despite the massive catch, Jordan and company are currently in fifth place in the tournament that has $3.4 million in cash prizes up for grabs.  

Jordan flashed a proud smile when he and his crew brought the big fish on to the dock for all to see.

The place went wild when his ‘Airness’, as he was known during his NBA playing days, put on his baseball cap to pose for photos alongside the massive fish that were taken by Grace Bell Photography. 

In a post-catch interview posted on TMZ, Jordan revealed he was happy to come back near his home in Wilmington to compete in his first marlin tournament in North Carolina.    

‘This was a chance for me to come back home and every chance I love to come back,’ he said.  

‘I’d love to come back with a little bigger fish,’ he said in reference to it not being the biggest of the day.

The first place boat caught a 494.2lb blue marlin. The three other crews pacing ahead of MJ reeled in fish weighing 470.4lbs, 450.2lbs and 450lbs, according to USA Today.

Despite being a number of pounds off the pace, Jordan, 57, was still feeling great about his big catch.

‘Even though I didn’t win right now, today, thanks for supporting the whole tournament because I think the tournament means a whole lot to the city. 

Among the cash prizes up for grabs: the biggest marlin overall nets $1.4 million and the first boat to catch one over 500lbs will win $552,500. 

The Chicago Bulls icon also revealed that he has competed in many blue marlin tournaments in the past but this was his first in his home state of North Carolina.

Although the star kept the majority of details under wraps while the mijmasks Instagram gives nothing away other than ‘coming soon’. 

The outing comes as Maya recently revealed that she is unfazed by ex Stormzy rapping about their relationship in his songs.

The Vossi Bop hitmaker, 27, referred their romance in his 2019 song Lessons, but Maya insisted that it comes with the territory if you date a musician.  

Speaking during a Q&A with singer Madison Beer as quoted by The Sun, Maya said: ‘I feel that going out with an artist, you kind of sign an invisible contract where it’s like, ‘This is this, it’s everybody’s business’.’

Stormzy’s song, which featured on his Heady Is The Head album, directly name-check’s Maya and their split.  

He raps: ‘Fast forward now, my nephew’s still asking for his Auntie Maya, guess this is the karma for what I done to Maya. 

‘I just stood and let it burn, I couldn’t down the fire. Lord, I pray you make it easy, that’s my one desire.’

Maya has since been linked to Drake, who reportedly first contacted the TV star in 2018, but she ignored his messages as she was still dating Stormzy at the time.

The God’s Plan hitmaker, 33, even provoked Maya’s ex Stormzy in a song where he refers to the TV presenter as a ‘sweet one’.

A source said: ‘Drake definitely appeared to have a soft spot for Maya and late in 2018 he started following her on Instagram out of the blue. She totally ignored him and didn’t follow him back as she was with Stormzy.

‘Even when she split with Stormzy it’s not something Maya wanted to pursue and she has left it.’  

Drake’s jibe on rapper Headie One’s track Only You Freestyle comes after Stormzy declared that he still ‘wholeheartedly’ loves Maya earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Stormzy’s new romance with Victoria’s Secret model Yasmine Holmgren is going from strength-to-strength as it was revealed last month that the pair enjoyed a secret reunion in London once lockdown ended.
