What Is Marlin Madness?

Marlin wants to know which tournament team is your favorite. Only you can determine the winner of each round. Sixty-four qualifying teams, each one with the possibility of becoming the Marlin Madness Champion.

In the Championship round of Marlin Madness, it’s Walk West versus Vintage – only one will emerge victorious. Walk West, representing the Gulf Coast and the Texas Legends Billfish Tournament, steamrolled their way through the ranks to win the division, then they defeated the East Coast Champion in a close race to stake their claim in the finals. Vintage came up through the strong Florida division, representing the Stuart Sailfish Club Light Tackle Tournament, gaining significant momentum with a win over the International division champion. The two will now go head to head, with your votes determining the 2021 Marlin Madness Champion.
