The Orange Beach Billfish Classic kicks off the 2019 Gulf Coast tournament fishing season. This is a family run tournament that emphasizes team participation and is the only tournament on the Gulf Coast owned and operated by tournament fishermen. The OBBC includes tuna, wahoo and dolphin (mahi) in it's optional cash categories but is primarily a blue marlin tournament and traditionally attracts first rate, competitive fishing teams with a passion for sportfishing from across the Gulf of Mexico. It is the first of the five tournaments along the coast qualifying for the Gulf Coast Triple Crown Series.
