2018 Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic - Schedule of Events

Posted by Tim Shepard - Broker on Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018 at 1:29pm.

Marlin fishing and Blue Marlin Classic

Anticipation is building for the 16th annual Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic at Sandestin Resort. Last year they set a record with 85 boats registered, this year is expected to be even higher. The Blue Marlin Classic is far from a local event, attracting entries throughout south eastern United States.

Changes to the 2018 event include a new minimum length requirement at 107 inches. This is an effort to help conserve some of the smaller, juvenile marlin. The Blue Marlin Classic runs from June 20-24, but the actual fishing begins at noon June 21 ending on the 23rd. Boats take off from Destin Pass after the horn blasts. Weigh-ins take place Friday and Saturday evenings.

Part of the fun is attending some of the popular happenings leading up to the Classic, as this is a celebration that the whole city gets involved in. Here is a schedule of events for the 2018 Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic:
