North Carolina Billfish Series

Welcome to the North Carolina Billfish Series! The North Carolina Billfish Series is an annual sportfishing series operating cooperatively with eight major billfish tournaments held along the Tar Heel coast. The Series promotes marine conservation, sportsmanship, and competition in our great offshore fishery. Participating boats or teams are awarded Series points for billfish caught and released and for billfish taken that meet tournament minimum size requirements. Penalty points are assessed for undersized fish taken, the emphasis being on fish released. Trophies are awarded for the overall winner, top private boat, top charter boat, and new for 2022 top outboard boat. Individual awards are given to the outstanding junior boy, outstanding junior girl, and lady anglers. In addition, trophies are awarded for the largest blue marlin, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, and dolphin.
