29th Annual Big Bend Saltwater Classic

Shields Marina in St. Marks will be hosting the 29th Annual Big Bend Classic on Father's Day Weekend.  The Moorings of Carrabelle will be an outpost weigh-in location.  We are proud to host the Forgotten Coast's Largest Fishing Tournament!

All of the proceeds from the Big Bend Saltwater Classic are used to develop artificial reefs in the Northeastern Gulf of Mexico. 

Have some fun and support a great cause!

We have some updates to the tournament that we want everyone to know about. Each year, the tournament board is faced with some difficult decisions. We do our best to keep out tournament entertaining and rewarding to all of our anglers.  

Weigh stations will be held at Shields Marina in St. Marks, FL and at The Moorings in Carrabelle, FL. The tournament headquarters will be at Sheilds Marina, 95 Riverside Drive, St. Marks, FL. As in 2015 & 2016, there will NOT be a weigh station in Port St. Joe, FL, however, Gulf County is still open to anglers during the tournament. Anglers will be responsible for weighing their catch at the weigh station of their choice. 

Thank you to all our supporters, volunteers, friends and sponsors of the tournament!  None of this could be possible without you!

Thanks and good luck!!
