Mission Bay Marlin Club's (MBMC) Charity Heart Marlin Tournament (in its 41st year) is a win-win-win situation: individual anglers, fishing clubs, and the American Heart Association all benefit from this annual event. The tournament includes a catch-and-release format and a club trophy for the best two-boat total among fishing clubs entered.
Individual anglers with qualifying releases or captures earn entries into the big prize drawings. Boats representing organized angling clubs are eligible to win the club trophy, and the club gets its name inscribed on the perpetual trophy that's displayed at the MBMC. Best of all, MBMC donates thousands of dollars to the American Heart Association.
Saturday, September 12th, lines in begins any time after at 12:01 a.m., and the tournament ends at 6:00p.m. Tackle may be any weight up to and including 80-pound test. One kept fish per angler may be entered for individual prizes. Each angler can release multiple fish. Each angler with qualifying fish will be entered into a drawing to determine prize winners. Refer to Rules and Regulations for more details. A club must have a minimum two boats to be eligible for the Club Trophy. An awards banquet will be held Sunday, September 13th 3:00 p.m. at Marina Village Captains Room.
The tradition is one of fun, camaraderie, and friendly competition while helping to tackle heart disease. For more information, please visit the Mission Bay Marlin Club's Website at www.missionbaymarlinclub.org.
