MD Angler, Boat Wins Record Prize at White Marlin Open

An angler from Bethesda, MD won $4.5 million at the annual White Marlin Open on Maryland’s Eastern Shore!

Jeremy Duffie reeled in a 77.5-pound white marlin on Friday's final day of the open while fishing on the Ocean City boat Billfisher. That exceeded Thursday's 71.5-pound white marlin caught by Keeley Megarity of Houston while on the “C- Student” boat from Southside Place, Texas. They received $197,000 for second place, open officials said Sunday.

The winning 511-pound blue marlin was landed by Bill Britt from Sandy Spring, Maryland, who was on board the "Cabana” out of Fenwick Island, Delaware. The tuna winners were Jason Hersh of Maple Glen, Pennsylvania, who fished aboard the “Southern C’s” out of Ocean City to reel in a bigeye of 247.5 pounds.
