See the Action – Spectators 

Interested in attending the premier blue marlin tournament on the East Coast? The Big Rock gives fishermen and fans of casual coastal living alike the opportunity to gather in the sun for a week of yachting, fishing, and summer celebration.

Attendees have flocked to Morehead City on North Carolina’s beautiful Crystal Coast since 1957 in hopes of catching a glimpse of the Big Rock’s biggest catch. Tournament-winning prize fish regularly eclipse 600 lbs, giving reason for all to stop by the weigh-in.  

Make sure you plan your trip to Morehead City this June to see:

  • Prize fish weigh-ins
  • Junior Anglers
  • KWLA Tournament (1-day women’s event with proceeds benefiting cancer research)
  • Rock’n Shots
