Event Date Change
Big Bend Saltwater Classic
The date for the Big Bend Saltwater Classic has changed from June 15th – 17th to July 6th – 8th.
After careful consideration, BBSC's Board of Directors unanimously voted on January 11, 2012 to change the date of the 24th annual Big Bend Saltwater Classic to July 6th – 8th. This date change will allow our anglers to fish for gag grouper during tournament weekend. The National Marine Fisheries Service has indicated that harvest of gag grouper will be permitted from July 1, 2012 through October 31, 2012 in federal waters. The proposed annual quota is for 2012 is 1,232,000 pounds. Once this quota is reached, harvest of gag grouper will no longer be allowed.
