Marlin magazine ranks Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic at Sandestin as one of the Top 10 Big Money Tournaments in the world, with over $1.4 million in cash prizes up for grabs.

We’re gonna need a bigger boat.

Every year, over 70 teams from around the globe show up at Baytowne’s marina. There’s a mad dash across Choctawhatchee Bay into the Gulf for a few days of serious sport fishing, and then the fleet returns, one-by-one, each boasting trophies that draw ooohs and aaaahs from a dock of spirited spectators.

This is a family-friendly event that grows in size each year, just like the tales of “the one that got away.”
