June 19-23, 2024

Emerald Coast fishing tournament

It's time to get your gear ready and start thinking about the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic. It's never too early to get your registration form in and start making plans. In the 2023 event, there was a total of 80 boats with $1,810,250 in Cash Awards. If you'll recall, the winner was Quantified with 13 Billfish releases. 

This year, the purse is over $2 million. That's pretty amazing when you consider the first tournament in 2003 had just 45 teams with cash awards of just under $330K. With over 27 optional entry levels, there are plenty of ways to win a prize.
