Posted May 29, 2018
The Billfish Foundation will acknowledge the Ocean City Light Tackle Club in November 2018 with its Club of Excellence Award. The Ocean City Light Tackle Club and its members are very grateful for the TBF's recognition of the clubs history and dedication to billfish release fishing.
75th Ocean City Light Tackle Club Derby
Fishing days: Sept 11th-15th, 2022
Location: Oregon Inlet, North Carolina
This is a historic Derby, our 75th event.
Rob Readmond, our Derby Champion, had an astonishing 1st day with 2 Blues, 1 white and a sailfish to not only take the top spot for the day but the tournament as well, while also racking up a genuine Grand Slam.
Randy Deleon had a pretty consistent tournament scoring with three fish on day one, 1 on day 2 and a blue marlin on day three with an hour left to go to capture second place on time (tieing Readmond with 600 points).
For the rest of the field, it was a pretty slow tournament. Over three days of fishing there were 11 blues, 17 white marlin and 18 sails caught by 36 anglers over 3 fishing days.
Look below for the standings.
Thank you to our Derby Chairman, Brian Light for organizing this event. We also know how much time and effort were contributed by Arlene too, so thank you.
