The Greatest Show in Sportfishing is going to be back in full force on July 16 + 17 at The Wharf Marina. The Blue Marlin Grand Championship (BMGC) is unlike any other fishing tournament with huge fish and even bigger purses. It is the final leg of the Gulf Coast Triple Crown Series, so don’t miss the chance to witness this year’s tournament fleet and prized catches. Amidst all the action, a deeper reason is top priority. The BMGC has raised over $130,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Come early to enjoy industry-related vendors and try your hand at the St. Jude Fighting Chair Challenge — a real sportfishing fighting chair that is similar to “tug-o-war” against a friend while raising money for the kids at St. Jude. Can't make it? Don't worry, you can tune in LIVE both nights to see the fish weighed in on BlueMarlinGrandChampionship.com.
