17th Annual Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic, June 3-9, 2013


The 17th annual Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic is less than two months away and the 2013 promises to be bigger and better than ever. Last year, the ever-popular blue water event paid out more than $1.1 million and the same plus more is expected to hold true this year out of the Isle Casino which is under transition to the Golden Nugget Casino, one of the giants in the gaming industry. The event is slated for June 3-9 with fishing for blue marlin, dolphin, tuna, wahoo and swordfish. But off the water, anglers, captains, and families can participate in two special non-fishing events. First up, will be the Gosling’s Rum “Go Deep” golf scramble on June 5 at 9a.m. and it’s open to all tournament participants and sponsors. ”The golf tournament will be held at Shell Landing in nearby Gautier, MS. It’s for the participants and sponsors”, said tournament director Bobby Carter. For entry forms, check out our new website www.MGCBC.com.
Another event encouraged by tournament officials will be the Third Annual Pub Crawl through the streets of downtown Ocean Springs on June 6 starting at 7 p.m. The entertainment to this event, one that drew a crowd of a few thousand last year, is Rockin Dopsie. Rockin Dopsie is a talented singer from New Orleans who sings a variety of music, including Cajun Zydeco. ”This is for all our sponsors, along with the friends and family members of the participants. The fishermen themselves will be out fishing”, said Carter.
The Billfish Classic is right around the corner and so plan now to come join us for a great time in beautiful Biloxi, MS at the Gold Nugget Casino.
