53rd Annual O.C. Fishing Tournament

Here's a recap of the tournament from Ed Parkinson, tournament chair. Please include it on the OCFC website and Facebook pages, along with the photos I've just sent you:

The Ocean City Fishing Club hosted our 53rd Annual Surf Tournament this past Saturday. Seventeen teams and 19 individuals registered to fish on a beautiful Fall day with mild temperatures, calm winds and seas. 


Twenty-nine sharks were caught and released. Rich Bergman from the Fish N Fuzz team scored the most fish points with an 11.5-inch kingfish. The day's big winner was Olga Monahan from the Atlantic City Saltwater Anglers with three sharks to earn top female angler honors. She also won a Century Sling-Shot 12.6” rod built and donated by Advanced Fishing USA in Avalon, NJ. Patrick Martin was the top-scoring individual with two sharks.


We value and thank the ASAC (www.asaconline.org) teams who fished the tournament. American Angler and Merchantville sent three teams, and Surf N Land sent two teams. We reported live from the beach about our tournament on the “Shep On Fishing” program, which aired on News Talk 1400 and 92.3 WOND. Mike Shepperd, the fishing columnist for The Press of Atlantic City who also is the “Shep” in the radio program, has been a fan and supporter of the Ocean City Fishing Club for many years and we enjoy sharing news from the ASAC fishing league and our club with him.


We would like to thank our business friends, Advanced Fishing USA of Avalon NJ, Fin-Atics  bait and tackle shop in Ocean City, Tightlines in Somers Point, and Marriott Old City Philadelphia, for helping us make our tournament a success. A special shout-out to Michael Rossbach from the city of Ocean City for his support, as well as Ed Comby from the Primary School for turning on the coffee at 4:45 a.m. and working with us all tournament day.
