Blue Marlin Grand Championship (BMGC)

Haven’t experienced the appropriately tagged “Greatest Show in Sportfishing” yet? Here’s your chance!

The Blue Marlin Grand Championship is unlike any fishing tournament. Big fish and even bigger purses! It is the final leg of the Gulf Coast Triple Crown Series, so don’t miss the chance to witness this year’s tournament fleet and prized catches.

Amidst all the action, a deeper reason is top priority. The BMGC has raised over $107,000 to date for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Fun, fierce, and philanthropic in nature!
