It is that time of year again, time to get the heavy tackle rods out,
rig some big baits and chase the pinnacle of fishing, the Black Marlin.

With Big Boat Shed on board as the naming right sponsor this year is
sure to be a huge event, combined with great catches of Black Marlin
all along the coast, how can you not be apart of this tournament.
