Worcester County Angler Aboard A Sussex County Boat Take White Marlin Lead
The angler is no stranger to having a winning fish at the scales. Tommy Hinkle of Ocean City won the Open in 2008. On Thursday, he hooked the fish sometime around 10:00 a.m. "We were fighting the fish for close to 2 hours," Hinkle said. "At that point in time we knew we had to get back here to the scales early." Hinkle and the crew wanted to minimize the amount of time the fish was out of the water. The longer it is out the more weight it loses.
