The event brings together some of the largest fishing fleets in the country with the biggest names in the fishing industry to provide the three pillars of the tournament: camaraderie in fishing, serious sportsmanship and family fun!
Competitors will head 100 miles offshore in hopes of capturing the big game lying in wait. Their prey: Bigeye and Yellowfin Tuna.
“These fish don’t come quietly. This is full on, adrenaline-spiking sport fishing that pits man against beast in the fight of their lives.” – Block Island Tourist Council
