Eighty-five boats and over $1.9 Million in cash prizes are destined to make this year’s Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic one for the record books. Tournament anglers will be fishing and competing in a variety of categories with the headliners being tuna, wahoo, dolphin and blue marlin. Come on out to this family-friendly event for the weigh-ins starting Friday evening from 4PM-8PM and Saturday evening from 4PM-8PM. After the fishing is done, stick around for fireworks on Friday night at 9PM sponsored by The Village of Baytowne Wharf.
