"Quicset" tops 8th Annual Poor Girls Open

The "Quicset" topped a field of 65 boats and 283 anglers to capture first place money in the 8th Annual Poor Girls Open, held last weekend at Bahia marina in Ocean City.

Poor Girl Newspaper ClippingKim Crouse of Ocean City caught and released a white marlin, while Jen Swanton, also a resort local, released her first blue marlin to give the "Quicset" a total of 210 points. Anglers were awarded 100 points for a white marlin or sailfish release and 110 points for a blue marlin release.

In what may be a first for the tournament, all three of the top boats caught a blue marlin and a white marlin for an identical score, so all three positions were decided on the time the second fish was caught. The "Quicset" edged out their competitors by just a matter of minutes.

In addition to Crouse and Swanton, the "Quicset" anglers included Michele Keriotis, Michelle Burgoon and Cammie Skillman. The crew consisted of Capt. Scott Kenneys, mate Jim Ruppert and Mate Mike Ruppert. The fish were caught in about 110 fathoms in the Baltimore Canyon. For their efforts, the girls on the "Quicset" won a total of $18,300.
