The 10th Annual Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic (ECBC) is scheduled for June 20-24 at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Fishing takes place in the Gulf of Mexico, one of the most prolific fisheries in the United States. Target species include blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, spearfish, tuna (blackfin, bigeye and yellowfin), dolphin and wahoo. All billfish are released except for blue marlin measuring over 103-inches.

Since its inauguration in 2003, the ECBC has grown to be the most prestigious fishing tournament on the Gulf Coast. It is also the richest tournament on the Gulf having reached cash purses as high as $1.5 million, and was ranked by Marlin magazine as the #5 big money tournament in the world. The ECBC is also a key stop for the World Billfish Series and the International Game Fish Association's Offshore Championship, and is a supporter of The Billfish Foundation. Harvest House, a local charity, is also a beneficiary of the event.

Tournament week at Sandestin offers something for everyone, from family activities, special events and sponsor exhibits to the spectacular weigh-in at Baytowne Marina Saturday night. Spectators and participants alike will have the opportunity to enjoy the excitement of the biggest catch and discover the new 2012 winners.
