The Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic
The Emerald Coast is host to one of the Top 10 Big Money fishing tournaments in the world! The ECBMC, starting on June 18 and lasting to June 22, 2014, gives anglers the chance to win huge payouts while also experiencing the natural beauty of the area. The Classic is a modified release tournament, meaning Blue Marlin are the only billfish that may be weighed. Release points are also rewarded for white marlin, sailfish, blue marlin, and spearfish. In addition, there are cash prizes for catching dolphin, wahoo, and tuna. The multiple categories offer fishermen different opportunities to win trophies and cash prizes, however, there are also many family activities available in the Destin Area. Because the tournament is housed at the Baytowne Marina and The Village of Baytowne, there is plenty of shopping and live entertainment on premises. More information on the event can be found here. If you’re looking to burst onto the Big Fish Scene with a splash this season, The Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic is a great place to show off your skills.
