Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic Fishing Tournament

Sandestin Florida Annual Fishing Tournament

The Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic happens every June off the Florida gulf coast – one of the most productive fisheries in the United States; timed to coincide with the peak of the Gulf Coast’s blue marlin season; hosted by the South’s number-one ranked resort destination. The Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic at Sandestin® has set the precedent for world-class, million dollar, sport-fishing tournaments.

The tournament starts Wednesday, June 21 with team registration. Boats start to leave the marina late Thursday morning to head for Destin Pass and the “shotgun start” which is at noon. There are lots of activities at Baytowne Marina on Friday, and the BIG Weigh-In starts at 4pm on Saturday. Visit – Sandestin Blue Marlin Classic
