|Welcome to the 4thAnnual Ocean City Offshore Challenge.
The Offshore Challenge is a fishing tournament open to charter and private boats fishing out of Ocean City, MD, Indian River, DE and surrounding areas. The tournament goes on throughout the duration of our fishing season from May through September and awards cash prizes for Tuna, Dolphin, Mako Shark and Wahoo. This year we are introducing an additional added entry level that will pay out cash prizes each month June-August to the heaviest yellowfin caught in that month.
The finest members of the area's charter fleet are tournament contenders each and every time the vessel leaves the inlet. So if you are planning an offshore fishing trip on Maryland or Delaware's blue waters, make sure you book with a contender. Visit our "Charter Boats" page for complete details and rates on all competing vessels for hire.
Last year's tournament was a great success and made fishing a little more exciting for everyone involved. Participation grew 100% from our inaugural event in 2004 and we are optimistic for similar growth this year. Between the Inshore and Offshore Challenge we were also very excited to raise approximately $2,000 to benefit the Believe in Tomorrow National Children's Foundation which operates the Children's House by the Sea in Ocean City and the Children's House on Fenwick Island.
Many thanks to all of the tournament's sponsors and supporters for making this event possible!
