We can’t wait for the 2019 tournament! 2018, saw record participation and prize money for the 2nd year in a row, so 2019 is sure to be another record breaking year. 2018 had 53 boats and they released 25 Blue Marlins, 6 White Marlin and a Sailfish. Anglers brought 5 Blue Marlin in to the scales for spectators to witness them being weighed in. The Orange Beach Billfish Classic at The Wharf in Orange Beach is the first big game fishing tournament of the season along the Gulf Coast and the first leg of the Gulf Coast Triple Crown Championship.
