Orange Beach Billfish Classic 2018

May 16 – 20, 2018, Wharf Marina, Orange Beach, Alabama

Gulf Coast Triple Crown
Tournament Series Will Kick Off at The Wharf with Orange Beach Billfish Classic

Orange Beach, AL—Marlin tournament season in the Gulf of Mexico means big fish and big bucks as well as a serious adrenaline rush, and nowhere is that feeling more apparent than in the extremely popular Gulf Coast Triple Crown Series, consisting of five high-profile tournaments in the Gulf of Mexico. At stake for the Top Team in the Triple Crown is not only a custom six-foot marlin trophy but also the honor of being named the best billfishing team in the Gulf of Mexico for the year.

 The Orange Beach Billfish Classic was formed in 1996 for the express purpose of providing financial support for organizations that speak effectively for all recreational fishermen. The OBBC quickly became a top event on the Gulf Coast tournament circuit and serves as an important fundraiser for The Billfish Foundation. Over the years the OBBC has donated over $675,000 to The Billfish Foundation and other conservation organizations. The OBBC is the world’s largest tournament donor to The Billfish Foundation with 100% of all net profits donated to qualified 501(c)(3) conservation organizations.

Since 2013 the Wharf Marina entertainment complex has hosted the Orange Beach Billfish Classic. The fishing teams enjoy the Wednesday night Kickoff Party with dinner, an open bar and live music while participating in the Optional Cash Awards “Pot Party”. After leaving Perdido Pass at noon on Thursday, fishing begins and continues until the fish are brought in to weigh before the crowds at the heart of The Wharf entertainment complex on Friday and Saturday night. The tournament comes to a close Sunday morning with the Awards Breakfast featuring shrimp and grits and a Bloody Mary bar.

The Orange Beach Billfish Classic kicks off the 2018 Gulf Coast tournament fishing season and is the first of the five Gulf Coast tournaments qualifying for the Gulf Coast Triple Crown Championship Series
