2017 SHARK TOURNAMENT

The OCMTC 2017 Shark Tournament began with a great turn out at the Captains meeting at the new Tight Lines Tackle Shop on Friday June 2nd.  Cocktails and sandwiches were served on the back deck overlooking Ocean City.  The following morning saw 14 boats assemble off the Wonderland Pier Ferris Wheel for a glorious sunrise and flat calm seas.  At 6:30AM sharp the count-down began and a Bimini Start resulted in OCMTC member boats racing for the horizon.  The Eni's beautiful new 41 Albemarle broke away from the pack, but the turbos in Charles Dolaway's Captain Chazz eventually kicked in and blew away the fleet.  And the crew of the Captain Chazz did not stop there.  The boat took first place with an impressive 368 points, and a 348LB Thresher Shark.  Alex Sabetta's Red Head took second place with a Thresher, and 110 points, and Jack Davidson's Breakaway totaled 9 releases for 90 points.  M & M had 70 points, Exit 30 had 50 points, and Woodshed and Jonesea II each totaled 40 points.  Other participating boats: On A Roll, Alana Ken, Joy, Angee V, Laurianna, Reel Addiction, and Summer Run.  First place angler went to Mick Foster, and second place Angler went to Alex Sabetta.
