Fish the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic
Posted on June 16, 2014
Whether you are living in a home in Fort Walton Beach, own Destin real estate or are shopping for an investment property in South Walton, we have a Gulf Coast event you are going to want to attend next weekend. It’s time for one of the most exciting fishing events on the Gulf Coast – the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic!
One of the most popular activities along our coastline is fishing and attending fishing tournaments. Late spring and early summer, however, are especially good times to take a Gulf Coast vacation and hit the water. All the most popular, and most delicious, fish are in season.
This particular tournament takes place at the Village of Baytowne Wharf from June 18 through June 22. Fisherman will take to the Gulf of Mexico in pursuit of Blue Marlin, Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna, among others. This tournament is popular with locals, visitors and even celebrities. Emeril Lagasse has participated in past years.
This Emerald Coast fishing event kicks off with a party at Graffiti and The Funky Blues Shack. There are plenty more events during the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic to attend, as well. Even if you don’t fish, come out to the evening weigh-ins at the Baytowne Marina to enjoy the excitement of the tournament as each boat brings in the catch.
