OCEAN CITY- The 11th Annual Kid’s Classic fishing tournament hosted last weekend by the Ocean City Marlin Club was once again a big success with fish of all sizes and species caught and, more importantly, funds raised for the Wish-A-Fish Foundation.

Dozens of young anglers of all ages competed in various categories from billfish and tuna offshore to croaker and spot inshore. Offshore, in the Billfish Release Division, the “Haulin and Ballin” crew took first place with 450 points, while the teams of young anglers on the “Reel Fantasy” and the “Reel Estate” shared second place with 300 points.

In the Tuna Division, it was the crew on the “Stacey” taking first with a 61-pound yellowfin. The crew on the “Wiggone” crew was second with a 14.6-pound yellowfin, while the “Seaduction” and the “Christine Marie III” tied for third. In the Dolphin Division, the “Jackal” was first, the “Nontypical” was second and the “No Limits” was third. The “Ridin Thirty” crew took first in the Wahoo Division, while the “Maverick” took first and second in the Shark Division.

Inshore, in the Flounder Division, the crew on the “Reel Chaos” swept the top two spots and tied for third with the “Little Critters” for third. In the Sea Bass Division, it was the “Buckshot” taking first, followed by the “Jezebel” and “Carol’s Teakettle.” In the Spot Division, it was the “Partnership” taking first and tying for second with the “Jeb” crew.

The crew on the “Wrecker” took first and third place in the Bluefish Divison, while the “Triple S” took second. The “Partnership” took first and second in the Croaker Division, while the “Blackjack” and “Ashy’s Boat” tied for third. Finally, in the most unusual catch division, it was the “Ridin Thirty” in first with a flying fish, the “Jezebel” in second with a gar, and the “High Anxiety” in third with a sock, yes a sock.
