About the tournament

Building on last year’s triumphant return, the Bay Point Billfish Open is delighted to invite anglers back to the Point South Marina at Bay Point for another year of premier sport fishing.

Local enthusiasts from Bay Point, in collaboration with renowned tournament organizers, are excited to host the Northern Gulf Coast’s most prestigious fishing spectacle once again in Panama City Beach, Florida.

In its second year since the revival, the tournament will showcase a competitive lineup of pelagic giants—Blue Marlin, Tuna, Wahoo, and Dolphinfish—accompanied by Catch and Release opportunities for all Gulf of Mexico Billfish species.

The 2024 Bay Point Billfish Open is set to continue its legacy with a prize pool expected to match or exceed the previous year’s impressive one million dollar total, bolstered by various optional entry categories.

Join us for what promises to be a riveting sequel to the most anticipated Elite Sportfishing Tournament on the Northern Gulf Coast.
