2nd annual Gulf Coast Outboard Classic starts June 19

The GCOC is a regional tournament for outboard boats only.

We are proud to present the 2nd annual Gulf Coast Outboard Classic.  We had a great response last year and are anticipating an even bigger turn out this year.  The GCOC is a regional tournament for outboard boats only.  There is no boat size limit - the only requirement is outboard propulsion.

This tournament is a new and highly anticipated concept for the Gulf Coast and will be held the weekend of June 19-20, 2009 at the Mobile Big Game Fishing Clubhouse in the Orange Beach Marina facility. The GCOC will be presented again by Jupiter Marine and brought to you in part by Orange Beach Marina, Bluewater Yacht Sales, J & M Tackle, Jamie Roussos Catering and Boosters, Inc.

For years, the outboard angler has wanted to fish on a level playing field in a billfish tournament and now, they will have the chance! The GCOC is a release only billfish tournament and includes all the meat fish kill categories (Dolphin, Wahoo and Tuna) with cash prizes for only $1000 per boat entry and no limit on the amount of anglers!  An additional cash awards category will be available as well. This tournament is a one-day shoot-out on June 20th with a fowl weather date set for the Sunday, June 21st.  The Captain's meeting and dinner will be held on Friday, June 19th with one day of fishing on Saturday and cash awards at the conclusion of the tournament Saturday evening.

This tournament is quickly becoming the premier outboard tournament on the Gulf Coast and will be a showplace for Jupiter, Sailfish, Regulator, Contender, Grady White, and a host of other center consoles and cuddy cabins.  Additional information can be viewed at www.OrangeBeachMarina.com/GCOC
