The Wharf - Orange Beach, AL
Rookie Team Wins 2014 BMGC

New boat owner Cramer Pierce made the most of his opportunity. Pierce saw his first blue marlin ever come up on a pink Marlin Magic lure, hooked the fish and finally landed it after a three-hour battle. Weighing in at 595 pounds, that fish turned out to be the largest recorded in the 2014 Blue Marlin Grand Championship and earned Pierce and the Dirt Pit team Grand Champion honors and $175,875 in prize money. Dirt Pit, a 55 Hatteras, is run by Capt. Travis Holzburn with mates Clay Holzburn and Brian Beason. It was only the second time the Union, Mississippi-based team had fished together. Read More

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

This year, for the first time, the BMGC partnered with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to raise funds for this very worthy charity. Rusty Skalla with his team from Rise Up led the donations with their top bid for the 56th position of $20,500. Beam Global/Southern Wine & Spirits provided personalized etchings on premium liquor bottles for a donation to the charity. Local radio station, 95 KSJ, helped gather donations during the Triple Crown Pompanette Fighting Chair Competition throughout Tournament weekend. With these combined efforts over $24,000 was raised and donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
