The 50th Annual White Marlin Open will take place in Ocean City at Harbor Island Marina. This is world’s largest billfish tournament! Over 400 boats vie for over $6 million in prize money. Registration fees for participating boats. Spectators see weigh-ins free of charge.
Weigh-ins at Harbour Island, located at 14th Street and the bay, attract thousands of people each day of the tournament from 4:00 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. Although the weigh-ins are free to spectators, there are millions of dollars on the line for anglers. For several hours, fans anxiously watch as the day’s best catches are weighed on the scale and bring in massive fortunes for anglers. Two large screens will be set up high above the crowds to provide a closer view of the weigh-ins for those who are not able to directly see the scale. Organizers recommend that people arrive early to secure the best spots at Harbour Island.
