Cajun Canyons Billfish Classic

Tournament Overview

 

CCBC 2017 LogoThe 2017 Cajun Canyons Billfish Classic presented by H&E Equipment Services, Inc. is hosted by Cypress Cove Marina, located in Venice, Louisiana and features a modified-release format for billfish species, along with BIG prize money for Blue Marlin, Tag or Release, Dolphin, Tuna, and Wahoo; something for everybody. The tournament name originates from the deepwater canyons off the Gulf coast of Louisiana: the Mississippi Canyon (named after the mighty Mississippi River, not our neighboring state) and the Green Canyon, both home to true, world-class sportfishing. Louisiana is home to the 1st “Grander” Blue Marlin caught in the Gulf of Mexico (1018.50 lbs.), along with monster Dolphin (state record 71.25 lbs.), 200 pound-plus Yellowfin Tuna (state record 240.19 lbs.), and 100 pound-plus Wahoo (state record 139.25 lbs.).

The Cajun Canyons Billfish Classic is the second leg of the Gulf Coast Triple Crown and also a qualifying event for both the Offshore World Championship and the InTheBite Captain of the Year Cup.
