FOR THE LADIES

Marlin - - FEEDBACK -

I was re­ally pleased to see Heather Maxwell’s ar­ti­cle on ladies’ tour­na­ments. Thanks for men­tion­ing the Ocean City Mar­lin Club ladies’ tour­na­ment, Heels and Reels. We are re­ally proud of our event, and we have some of the best lady an­glers in the world en­ter each year. How­ever, we do not make them fish three straight days in any con­di­tions. Our tour­na­ment fishes one out of two days. We also host one of the largest ladies’ tour­na­ments in the world. The Capt. Steve Har­man’s Poor Girls Open, based out of Bahia Ma­rina in Ocean City, av­er­ages more than 100 boat en­tries each year. The tour­na­ment takes place the week af­ter the White Mar­lin Open and usu­ally has some fan­tas­tic fish­ing. Also, the tour­na­ment has do­nated hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars to breast-can­cer re­search. Har­man and his wife, Pam, came up with the idea for the tour­na­ment back in the ’90s, and the tour­na­ment is cur­rently run by Har­man’s brother and daugh­ters (un­for­tu­nately, Har­man passed away sev­eral years ago).
