Interesting fact (from the White Marlin Open website): One of the biggest misconceptions about the White Marlin Open is that only experienced offshore anglers have a chance to win the big money. A look at the recent Tournament history shows that almost half the winners have had limited deep-sea fishing experience. Last summer’s top individual award of $1.6 million dollars went to Glen Frost of Stevensville, MD who’s 95.5-pound white marlin was his first ever billfish catch. Like Frost, Doug Remsberg had never caught a billfish. As a matter of fact, Doug had never even been billfishing before but that didn’t stop Doug and a group of friends from pooling their money to enter the 2003 tournament. The group chartered the Lazy Bones out of Ocean City and Doug’s first billfish catch was a 78.5-pound white marlin that took first place in the 2003 event and won $1,300,000! In 1989, Dr. Jim Daniel’s first billfish turned out to be a Maryland State Record 942-pound blue marlin. Over the past 10 years, among anglers catching their first billfish include a $780,000 winner, a $415,000 winner, 3 winners of more than $300,000 and 6 anglers whose 1st ever billfish catch earned over $100,000.
