The 38th Annual Charles Kratz & Scott Smith Challenge Cup was held this past Saturday with 25 boats registered for Ocean City and 24 boats registered for Cape May.  It’s been several years since the Ocean City Marlin Club has held the Challenge Cup, but there was a tremendous effort put up by some Ocean City boats and the OCMC was able to capture the Challenge Cup and bragging rights for the year.

The top six boats were totaled and then divided by six to determine the winner and the Ocean City Marlin Club defeated the Cap May Marlin and Tuna Club 787.50 points to 500 points.

The total fish caught by the two clubs was impressive with 58 white marlin and one blue marlin being caught by the Cape May Marlin and Tuna Club and 126 white marlin and one blue marlin being caught by the Ocean City Marlin Club.

The top six boats from the Cape May Marlin and Tuna Club were Polarizer (300 points), Liquidity (450 points), Team Player (450 points), Oil Slick (450 points), Viking 70 (600 points) and Canyon Lady (750 points).

The  top six boats from the Ocean City Marlin Club were Gret’s Three J’s (525 points), Intents (675 points), BAR South (825 points), Sea Slammer (825 points), Billfisher (900 points) and Makara (975 points).

Congratulations to the Ocean City Marlin Club on the victory and congratulations to both clubs on some great fishing and awesome camaraderie!
