2020 Blue Marlin Grand Championship of the Gulf
Free to spectators. For anglers, a $2,500 nonrefundable entry deposit is required. The balance of the entry fee ($7,500) must be paid by June 30.
What makes the Blue Marlin Grand Championship (BMGC) such a special event? Here's your answer: the over-the-top weigh-in experience appropriately billed as "the greatest show in sportfishing."
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 wont find anywhere else. The BMGC has been recognized as one of the Top 20 events in the Southeast and has currently raised $130, 000 for St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital.
