Blue Marlin Championship this Weekend!
Posted on July 7, 2015
While you could take a break from shopping for Florida or Alabama real estate to hit up the Pensacola Beach Air show this weekend, some people prefer the sea over the air. If this sounds like you, head for Orange Beach and their biggest fishing tournament of the year!
The Blue Marlin Grand Championship has fast become known as one of the “greatest shows in sportfishing.” This is because it is a weekend packed with great events on land and at sea. Even if you don’t plan to or like to fish, you will still find a ton to do at The Wharf. In addition to great tournament events, you will also be near awesome shopping and dining at The Wharf.
Captain and crew events kick off today, July 7, with the official kickoff party taking place on July 8 at Bimini Bob’s. For those fishing, get ready to set sail on July 9 at noon with a special flare launch! Most trips are overnight, so those staying on land won’t get to enjoy the spectacular weigh-ins until Friday and Saturday evening at 7pm. This is arguably the most exciting portion of any tournament. Watch as boats come to shore and offload their amazing catches!
Don’t miss this fun Gulf Coast fishing tournament of the awesome Blue Marlin, Dolphin, Tuna and Wahoo catches that each crew is sure to bring to shore. See you on the docks of The Wharf!
