Fish being weighted in at the tuna tournament

July 12July 14, 2013

OC Fishing Center, West Ocean City

The 26th Annual Ocean City Tuna Tournament will attract more than 100 competing fishing boats and crews, vying to win part of the $500,000 in cash prizes.

The anglers fish all day, but the local Ocean City action begins at 4:00 each afternoon when officials weigh the daily catch on the docks of the Fishing Center.

Awards are given for a range of categories, including Largest Single Fish and Largest Amount of Fish Caught (in pounds). The competition includes a Ladies Division and a Junior Division. Eligible species are Big Eye, Yellow Fin, and Blue Fin tuna. Since a tuna must weigh at least 30 pounds to qualify for the weigh-in, spectators will predictably see some large, spectacular fish! Free for attendees at weigh-in.
