Fisherman’s Mancation – Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament

A Sportfishing Mancation

With a lot of sporting events being covered lately, it’s awesome to post about a man trip that our bros can actually go participate in, and the Big Rock has been doling out over $1 million in prizes for the last 14 years (read the cool history of this tournament which dates back to the 1970s).  While the blue marlin class is brings home the big bucks (and costs some big bucks to enter), there are other ways to win, including dolphin, yellowfin tuna, and wahoo.  With a nice pool of prize money, you might just come home with some dough to cover the cost of this excursion.

Tune in for the show

Every afternoon the weigh-ins are webcasted, so check out the big daddies being hauled in.  Right now the leaders are pulling in close to 500 lbs worth of fish!

If you can’t make it down to Moorehead City for this one, it also works pretty well to just bust out some good rum and some Hemmingway, spread out in a hammock, and leave the trip to Home Depot for some other day. is a website dedicated to finding and highlighting the best mancations around the world.  Our Man Trip Planner is a calendar which hosts over 200 epic trip ideas for your next mancation.
