Cabana Wins $495,000 in 2023 Ocean City Tuna Tournament

Check out Day 2 action at the Ocean City Tuna Tournament

I just got back from an awesome night under the tent where lots of money was handed out to the winners of the Ocean City Tuna Tournament and everyone had a great time.  We had two completely different weather days as when scales opened at 4 PM it was a deluge with pouring rain, and then when scales closed at 7 PM it was sunny and beautiful.  It was a terrible weekend of weather on the ocean with rough seas, but it was an awesome weekend of fishing.  In the end the crew of the Cabana with Captain Eddie Wheeler were the big winners taking the Winner-Take-All Pro Jackpot in both the heaviest stringer and heaviest single fish categories.  This got them a check for over $495,000.  Congratulations to the crew of Cabana, all of the other winners in the OC Tuna Tournament and to Rolfe Gudelsky, Brian Tinkler and the team at the OC Fishing Center for an awesome event!!  Here are the winners of each category.
