On Thursday morning, May 19th, the boat traffic leaving The Wharf will be filled with anxious and excitement fishermen. They’ll all be looking forward to reaching open water to begin the 2016 Orange Beach Billfish Classic.

By the following night and again on Saturday night, weary but hopefully triumphant, they’ll return for weigh-in. The massive catch will be hoisted for the official weight and length. Crowds will gather to see if this year brings a record catch.
