It was an exciting weekend for the Ocean City Marlin Club for the 34th Annual Canyon Kick-Off Tournament at Sunset Marina.  There were lots of nice fish weighed including the beautiful 125.8 pound yellowfin tuna by angler Brian Stempowski aboard Captain Frank Goodhart’s Brenda Lou.  There were 63 boats vying for $72,990.00 in prize money and here’s how it all shook out.
