There won’t be another Ocean City Shark Tournament.

2014 was its last after 30 years.

There were three couples who organized the event.

And Mark Sampson told the Salisbury Daily Times that “it just felt that it was time.”

Among the struggles has been bad weather resulting in low attendance.

The paper reports that three couples had thought about making some dramatic changes but in the end decided that 2014 would be the last year.

At its peak there were more than 80 boats and it had become a tradition in Ocean City.
