2017 MidAtlantic Fishing Tournament
August 20, 2017
Location: Ocean City, MD Started back in 1992, the “Mother of All Marlin Tournaments”, as it was called, posted an unprecedented upfront prize of $500,000. Calcutta entries that first year put the total purse over $1,000,000, making the Mid-Atlantic the first bona fide million dollar billfishing contest. Over the years, the tournament has grown to be one of the top events in the sport. Known for its great fishing, hospitality and camaraderie, the MidAtlantic is a must attend event for competitive billfishing anglers. The fishing and fun take place out of two ports: Cape May, NJ, which is the home base of the event and Ocean City, MD, where Sunset Marina serves as OC tournament headquarters. Each port has first class accommodations and offers distinct amenities for participants to enjoy. Both locations have full weigh-ins which are visually linked by computer and broadcast media to keep everyone informed as the excitement happens. Best of luck to all the anglers!
