Not to mention it's a great excuse to throw a weekend long party, with lots of fun activities, great music and food!

    The Orange Beach Billfish Classic was formed in 1996 for the express purpose of providing financial support for organizations that speak effectively for recreational fishermen. The OBBC quickly became a top event on the Gulf Coast and serves as a major fundraiser for The Billfish Foundation. Since it's inception the OBBC has donated over $730,000.00 to TBF and other qualified conservation organizations. The OBBC includes tuna, wahoo and dolphin (mahi) in its 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. Prize money, not including optional cash categories, pays out to landed blue marlin and catch and release billfish. This family run tournament emphasizes team participation and is the only tournament on the Gulf Coast owned and operated by tournament fishermen. The OBBC places emphasis on fairness, a sensible payout, a schedule that caters to fishing teams and billfish conservation.
