    Important Tournament Update

    The 18th Annual Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic will take place June 17th-21st. We've monitored the impact and regulations surrounding the Coronavirus and feel we can hold the tournament safely and responsibly with no social or public events and by asking our participants to follow social distancing and other health precautions.

    Over the next week we'll be modifying procedures and updating the schedule. In the meantime we'd like to take this time to thank our sponsors, staff, volunteers and most importantly our participants for your support. We'll do our best to make this year's event memorable!


    The Big Show... Online

    Social distancing may be the order of the day, but it doesn't mean you have to miss the show. We've upgraded the WiFi at the marina for more and faster connections and are welcoming back CatchStat to provide live scoring and streaming video. So even though you can't make it down to the marina, you can still watch the show! We'll publish links to scoring and video on the home page of the website closer to the tournament... and look forward to virtually seeing you there!

Fortunately there is a fun and beneficial way to cope—Go fishing! Even under the various stay-at-home guidelines, fishing is allowed as outdoor recreational activity and rightly so. READ MORE
