The Greatest Show in Sportfishing!

July 12-17, 2016


Beginning in 2014 the Blue Marlin Grand Championship added to the limited field of competitors one extra Charity Entry to benefit the St Jude Children's Research Hospital. The extra St Jude Children's Hospital Charity Benefit Entry is a great way to not only have a guaranteed spot on the tournament roster, but also help children in need with their fight against deadly diseases.

Why This Tournament?

Ask sportfishermen about this tournament and over and over again you will hear,
"If you only fish one tournament this season, the Blue Marlin Grand Championship should be the one."    Why is that?

A professionally planned, promoted and produced event including Live Local TV coverage, worldwide online streaming, jumbotrons, light shows, captain and crew interviews — basically, everything an event like this SHOULD be.

Unlike any other tournament, you and your team are the stars of the show, and will experience the kind of V.I.P. "Rock Star" treatment you will find nowhere else.
