Ask anyone on the docks, the 2018 Ocean City Tuna Tournament was a nail-biting experience for most with plenty of action at the scales. We saw huge numbers of tuna, massive dolphin, and even a wahoo. The weather changed for the worst as the weekend progressed, but this didn’t stop our fleet to head out and earn the prize money. A special shoutout to a few boats in the Sunset Marina family who won some money from the Tuna Tournament: the Marli, who claimed second place in the Stringer category, took home over $83,000. They fell just shy of the ‘Goin In Deep’, who took first place in that category winning over $237,000 for their 325lb stringer weight. The ‘Magic Moment’ held first place in the tuna category on Day 1 but in the end fell into second place with his 73lb Yellowfin and taking home over $45,000. The ‘No Quarter’ had quite the payout as well, winning over $46,000 for their third place stringer. The ‘Reel Chaos’ placed 3rd in the heaviest Dolphin category and second in the Lady Angler category, winning $1,500 overall. ‘Lucky Duck II’ placed in two category’s as well, taking third in Top Lady Angler and heaviest stringer for boats 36′ to 51′, taking home $8,600 in winnings. ‘Let It Ride’, docked on C-dock, took home first and second place in the Junior angler category with two 54lb Tuna. Yes, he tied himself! The ‘Primary Search’ took home $5,850 for holding the heaviest stringer weight for boats 35′ and under with their 137lb Stringer.
