Edisto Marina Billfish Tournament

Experienced fisherman and newcomers alike won’t want to miss the 21st annual Edisto Marina Billfish Tournament. An Annual Edisto Tradition for 21 Years, the tournament kicks off May 13th at Edisto Marina, and comes to an exciting conclusion May 16th.

The event officially opens with the traditional Blessing of the Fleet by Rev. Wey Camp, Rector of Edisto’s Trinity Episcopal Church. Words of welcome will be extended by Mayor Burley Lyons, followed by the Captains’ Meeting and dinner.

Fishing days are Thursday, Friday and Saturday with participants choosing two of the three days to fish.  Daily weigh-ins begin on the docks at 5:00 p.m. The event culminates with the Awards Ceremony and dinner, followed by dancing on the docks on Saturday night.
