The MidAtlantic 500

August 21, 2016 - August 26, 2016


The 25th Annual MidAtlantic 500 tournament runs from August 21-26 2016. The fishing and fun take place out of two ports: Cape May, NJ, which is the home base of the event and Ocean City, MD, where Sunset Marina serves as OC tournament headquarters. The MidAtlantic 500 began back in 1992, and was donned the “Mother of All Marlin Tournaments”, with an unprecedented upfront prize of $500,000. Calcutta entries that first year put the total purse over $1,000,000, making the Mid-Atlantic the first bona fide million dollar billfishing contest.
