It’s back for another year of fun, festivities, and hard-earned rewards! Whether you’re an avid angler, a sport supporter, or just a fan of fun, it’s time to head to the Crystal Coast to celebrate the biggest event of the year! The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament returns to Morehead City on June 8th—are you in?
What is the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament?
If you’ve been to Morehead City, you’ve probably heard the name, or even seen the giant marlin statue Downtown. But, what is it? Simply put, it’s the biggest fishing tournament around, complete with various competitions and pretty impressive cash prizes. But over the years, it’s become so much more. And as a proud sponsor of the event since 1988, Linda Rike Real Estate has watched the event grow and really take off over the decades.
What’s Coming to the 60th Annual Big Rock?
This year, we celebrate six decades (6!) of Big Rock tournaments! There will be the traditional events, like the Keli Wagner LadyAngler (KWLA) Event to kick off the contest, followed by six days of fishing at the main event. But there’s way more than that.
Regular Events Return to the Big Rock
Every year, anglers and non-anglers alike enjoy recurring events like the Captain’s Cocktail Party and Dance, the Sunday Pig Pickin’, Baileys Trunk Show, an Awards Cocktail Party, and plenty of live concerts.
New & Special Events in 2018
Every year, we welcome a few new events to the Big Rock. This year, you can enjoy fun festivities like the Beaufort Club Big Rock Lay & Play Golf Tournament (participants only), a Prayer & Breakfast, Painting with a Purpose, the Big Rock, Big Hero Experience, and many more.
