As you make plans to attend this event during these confirmed 2022 dates, we will update this section with more details as soon as we learn of them. Meanwhile, last year's details are included below for you.

Sometimes things come together at the right place and right time to create something truly unique. The Blue Marlin Grand Championship is a result of one such magic combination.

The right team.
With the tournament experience and knowledge to create a hybrid tournament scoring system emphasizing released Billfish.

The right venue.
Unlike any other on the Gulf Coast. The magnificent Wharf Entertainment Complex under the leadership of Art Favre.

These ingredients, and many others, led to the creation of the Billfish tournament which has become known as the Greatest Show In Sportfishing.

Well-thought-out and carefully executed tournament parties and events centered around the marina and its upland amenities. A weigh-in arena and spectacular experience unlike anywhere in the world.

The Blue Marlin Grand Championship is not only the finale of the acclaimed Gulf Coast Triple Crown Series — but a tournament experience you simply don't want to miss.

We'll even throw in a little Southern glamour for good measure.

It happens each July at the Wharf.

July 13 – 17, 2022
