Things To Do:
Reel in the big one. And One Million Dollars!
Join us for the 40th Annual White Marlin Open from Monday, August 5 through Friday, August 9, 2013. The fish are spectacular and the prizes are huge—totaling more than $2 million.
It's the World's Largest Billfish Tournament—held in the White Marlin Capital of the world. This year the stakes are high with over $1.4 million awarded in 2012 for the biggest white marlin. Prizes are also awarded for the largest blue marlin, tuna, mahi-mahi (dolphin fish), wahoo and shark. The 2012 White Marlin Open featured huge tuna and even a Maryland State record shark.
