Marlin Madness East Coast Voting

These teams from the East Coast region are some of the most versatile in the business, but only one champion can rule the region.

The winner of the East Coast division is the Fish Whistle team, who qualified for Marlin Madness as the top team at the wildly popular White Marlin Open tournament in Ocean City, Maryland. They advanced through the brackets with wins over Evelyn Kennedy, Carterican and Top Dog, eventually facing fan favorite team Haulin’ and Ballin’ in the final. However, Fish Whistle’s momentum was enough to propel them to victory, and advance to the Final 4 and represent the East Coast. They defeated the Gulf Coast Champion to stake their claim in the championship.


In the Championship round of Marlin Madness, Fish Whistle and Fa La Me went head to head to see who would walk away with it all. After the tightest championship round in Marlin Madness history, Fish Whistle walked away with the win and is now the reigning 2020 Marlin Madness Champion.
