2011 MGCBC Winner | Photo by Alaric Lambert

June 8-12, 2011  |  Hosted by the Isle Casino Hotel, Biloxi MS

The Billfish Classic is widely known as the premier billfish tournament event in the entire Gulf of Mexico. Going into its fifteenth year, the event is popular for its fantastic offshore bite, record breaking fish, millions in cash payouts, exciting atmosphere and high energy gaming and entertainment at the Isle Casino Hotel. Looking to put on one of the best events in recent years, the Classic, for the first time since the hurricane of 2005, will have a full marina with all new slips, electrical hookups, and supporting facilities. With clear blue waters expected offshore, the event is sure to bring in anglers from all over the world searching for big fish and big bucks! If you fish only one tournament on the Gulf Coast, is has to be the Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic!
