2nd Annual OCMC Rockfish Tourney On Tap

OCEAN CITY- The nine-day 2nd Annual Ocean City Marlin Club Rockfish Tournament gets underway today, December 5, with a captain’s meeting and registration with the fishing action set to start tomorrow.

The Marlin Club’s second-ever rockfish tournament will run from December 6 to December 14. Boats and teams of anglers will decide to fish five of the nine days. As the name of the tournament implies, rockfish will be the primary species targeted along with red drum and bluefish. The top three heaviest fish in each category will win awards and federal minimum sizes apply for each species. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Weigh-ins will be held at Sunset Marina each day of the tournament from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. All catch reports must be turned in to the Marlin Club weigh master at Sunset Marina by 5 p.m. each fishing day. An awards banquet will be held at the Marlin Club on Sunday, December 14 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The boat entry fee is $250, while the shore entry fee is $100.
