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.

The BMGC was recognized as one of the Top 20 Events in the Southeast for July 2015! As a result, this year's tournament will receive even more national recognition and publicity, making what is now "The Greatest Show in Sportfishing" an even better event.

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?

The over-the-top weigh-in experience appropriately billed as "The Greatest Show in Sportfishing." 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.
