What Is Marlin Madness?

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

Teams are divided into four regions – East Coast, Florida, Gulf Coast and International – based on their tournament win in the division bracket. The winner of each bracket advances to the final four semi-finals.

Congratulations to the 2022 Marlin Madness champion High Cotton!
