You know who has a pretty good life? Michael Jordan.
But we already knew that, didn’t we?
It’s good to be the GOAT.
And never was this more evident than this week down at the Big Rock Blue Marlin Fishing Tournament in Morehead City, North Carolina.
That’s because MJ and his giant 80-foot Viking boat named the “Catch 23” showed up at the Morehead City Yacht Basin Monday morning as MJ and his crew are participating in the 62nd annual tournament.

According to Haulover Inlet, Jordan’s boat, the Catch 23, is trimmed with the same elephant print that is synonymous with the Air Jordan 3 sneakers (so is his plane) and was also entered in the 2019 Ocean City, Maryland White Marlin Open.
MJ and his crew have already snagged a 442 pound marlin, but The GOAT being The GOAT, says he wants to do even better.
