The recent Ocean City Marlin and Tuna Club Overnight Billfish Tournament, held out of Ocean City, New Jersey, resulted in 114 releases from a field of 36 boats. In addition to the releases, a wide variety of tuna, wahoo, dolphin and mako were brought to the scales. New Gretna’s own Viking 70 demo won the tournament with an all-time record for points. Captain Ryan Higgins led his team to 26 white marlin releases, another tournament record, along with two yellowfin tunas. The crew was on such a roll, they released another five after lines out. Richard Ryon’s Viking 50 Anthracite released 17 whites and two yellowfins placing them in Third Place overall. Watch some of the action aboard the Viking 70 here.
