Ocean City, MarylandOcean City, Maryland has long been known as the "The White Marlin Capital of the World." Of all the thousands of white marlin caught off the Maryland coast, the one encased here is the largest. The Maryland state record white weighed 135 pounds and was caught on August 29, 1980. To give you an idea of just how large this fish is, an average white marlin probably weighs just 45 to 50 pounds. Capt. Charles Kratz, Angler George Pierson and Mate John Ingram caught the record white on his boat "Five Cs" during the Ocean City Marlin Club Tournament that year. All three men were members of the Marlin Club.
