Next Up... The Cape May Marlin Tournament

MidAtlantic Cup

July 4, 2024

The MidAtlantic Cup has continued to attract participants in search for the majestic blue marlin up and down the East Coast. As the largest open boundary tournament with weigh stations from Manasquan Inlet to Virginia Beach, this tournament is the next MUST DO events for any marlin fishing enthusiast!

Starting off with nearly a $50,000 prize purse rolled over from last year’s tournament, this year’s MidAtlantic Cup will cer[1]tainly climb higher as teams return to the battle grounds in search for a winning blue marlin to bring back to the scales! This is your chance to compete with marlin anglers across the region. From Sandy Hook, NJ to Virginia Beach, VA all are welcome to join in on the action.

This event allows participants to depart at any time and from any inlet they choose and run as far as they want. Fishing beings at 8:30AM and ends at 4:30PM on July 4th. This one day tournament has only one place to fill… First. A winner take all, best of the best event that surely is going to take bragging rights to the next level.

If you’re looking to compete on an additional level, MidAtlantic Cup also coincides with the Blue Marlin World Cup for a chance to not just be the best in the region, but the best in the WORLD! So who exactly has the best Blue Marlin fishing ac[1]tion in the MidAtlantic region? Only time will tell on July 4th, 2024 during the MidAtlantic Cup!
