Event Description

The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, held in Morehead City each year, is one of the largest sport fishing tournaments in the U.S. and one of the top billfish competitions in the world.

The Big Rock is a series of ledges, peaks and plateaus that runs along the North Carolina coastline just south of the Morehead City port. Big Rock is now considered the premier spot for marlin fishing on the East Coast.

This exciting nine-day event includes fun-filled activities and daily public weigh-ins at Big Rock Landing. Festivities begin with a one-day Lady Anglers tournament that serves to introduce women to sports fishing, as well as to benefit local charities.

The following Monday begins the first of six total days of fishing in the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament. The last weigh-in for the tournament takes place on Saturday. And the awards brunch is held on Sunday at the Crystal Coast Civic Center in Morehead City. Proceeds from the Big Blue Rock Marlin Tournament are given to local charities.

Big Rock fans are encouraged to follow the live tournament coverage that takes place on the tournament’s website, social media and app.
