OCEAN CITY- The Ocean City Marlin Club’s 7th Annual Heels and Reels Tournament last weekend was a big success with thousands doled out in prize money and thousands more raised for the Bertha Holloway Auxiliary Scholarship Fund, the club’s charitable wing.

The Heels and Reels Tournament is the club’s only ladies-only event in its summer-long tournament series and a portion of the proceeds go to the Ocean City Marlin Club’s Bertha Holloway Auxiliary Scholarship Fund. The tournament was held last weekend with teams of lady anglers competing in several divisions.

In the Billfish Release Division, it was the crew on the Grande Pez taking first place with 550 total release points worth a total of $15,295 in prize money. The crew on the “Max Bet” was second with 400 release points and earned $3,967. The “Lights Out” was third with 300 release points and earned $2,678.

In the Dolphin Division, it was the crew on the “Miss Annie” taking first with a 20.2-pounder worth $7,065. The “Slaughterhouse” was second with a 20-pounder worth $1,674, while the “Buckshot” was third with a 15.4-pounder worth $1,116.

In the Tuna Division, the “Miss Annie” crew swept the top three spots with a 56-pounder, a 48-pounder and a 40-pounder. The “Miss Annie” crew won a tournament-high $16,920 in prize money when the tuna division sweep was added to the first place finish in the dolphin division. The “Miss Annie” also released a white marlin. The Junior Angler Award went to Emma Campbell on the “Reel Estate” with a white marlin release worth $500.
