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 won’t 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 Children’s Research Hospital.

There are many opportunities for the public to attend this event and join in on the fun.
