Summer is Time for Big Fish Tournaments on Alabama’s Beaches

BillfishThe first big-time fishing tournament in Orange Beach is May 18-22. The 2016 Orange Beach Billfish Classic is the first tournament in the Gulf Coast Triple Crown. If you haven’t been at The Wharf in Orange Beach for the weigh-in at one of these high-profile tournaments, you don’t know what you’re missing! The excitement builds in the air as onlookers watch the huge fish carted in and the weigh-ins begin.

But the big tournaments aren’t the only game in town during the summer.  The Flora-Bama Fishing Rodeo bills itself as the “funnest” fishing tournament around. Be sure to check our Calendar of Events for all the tournament action.
