The Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic at Sandestin is Northwest Florida’s most successful entry into world-class sport-fishing tournaments. The tournament remains one of the richest on the Gulf Coast attracting major players from across the globe. 2016 saw several broken tournament records with the most impressive being the new tournament record prize purse, and Gulf Coast record, which sat just north of $1.95 million. All of the excitement combined with Sandestin’s top-shelf amenities truly makes the ECBC a winning premier event.

The competing anglers are not the only fishing enthusiasts who will hook a good time during ECBC. Baytowne Marina is the place to be for two days of exciting weigh-ins as top anglers vie nearly 2 million dollars in prizes. Enjoy nightly fun with entertainment and activities, plus, don’t miss Friday night’s fireworks show and live music! Admission is free and open to the public. Details are subject to change based on weather. Visit www.FishECBC.com for more info.
