The Gulf Coast Triple Crown consists of the most competitive and prestigious billfish tournaments held in the Gulf of Mexico. The lineup for 2014 consists of the Orange Beach Billfish Classic in the kickoff spot, followed by the Cajun Canyons Billfish Classic in Venice, Louisiana. The Series moves to Biloxi for the Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic, then to Florida for the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic at Sandestin. The Series comes full circle for the season finale, the Blue Marlin Grand Championship of the Gulf, held at The Wharf Entertainment Complex in Orange Beach, Alabama. There is no additional charge or entry paperwork required for any team wishing to participate in the Gulf Coast Triple Crown, and the top team at the conclusion of the season wins a truly stunning six-foot custom marlin trophy by marine artist Frank Ledbetter, presented at the conclusion of the Blue Marlin Grand Championship event.
