Event Description

One of the largest sport fishing tournaments in the U.S., the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, is held in Morehead City and draws more than 200 competitors each year. The Big Rock is a series of ledges, peaks and plateaus that runs along the NC coastline just south of the Morehead City port.
