20th Annual Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic at Sandestin
Marlin Magazine ranks the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic as one of the Top 10 Big Money Tournaments in the world! Officially sanctioned by the World Billfish Series and a qualifying event for the IGFA World Championship Circuit, the ECBC attracts anglers of all skill levels.
In 2021, we had our second largest amount of entries and cash awards with 88 Teams and $1,976,300. Now in its 20th year the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic continues to expand, yet the core attributes of the tournament remain the same: world-class competition, exceptional service, a beautiful backdrop for the event and fun for the whole family.
Weigh-ins are free and open to the public. We'll see you on the docks!
DateThu., Jun. 23-26
