OCEAN CITY, Md.- Upsets, unopposed categories and a lot of money were at stake Friday for the last day of the 44th annual White Marlin Open tournament in Ocean City. 

A record breaking fish was caught to win the white marlin category.  The third largest in history for the tournament weighing in at 95.5 pounds.  The winning fish won angler Glen Frost, of Stevensville, over $1.6 million.  

Second place in the white marlin category went to Mike Donohue from Wilmington, Del. for his 86-pound fish.  He claimed over $1.5 million. 

Third place went to Ocean City's own Joe Andrews aboard M.R. DUCKS for a 79.5-pound white marlin. 

The top tuna fish were Joe Sadler in first place with a 68.5-pound tuna.  James Boynton held second place and Kris Rainear claimed third, both with 67 pound fish. 

The top wahoo fish went to Gary Capuano with a 55-pound fish caught on Monday.

Frank Snover caught a 126-pound shark aboard Restless Lady out of Ocean City.  Andrew Cohen won the dolphin category with a 23-pound fish awarding him over $74,000.
