South Carolina’s Governor’s Cup

Governors Cup Megadock Billfish Tournamen


Summer is fishing tournament season along the Southeast Seaboard, and there is no better place to enjoy the action than in Charleston, South Carolina. The Governor’s Cup Billfishing Series continues in July with two great events: The MegaDock and Edisto Invitational tournaments. For a spectator, the MegaDock Tournament is unlike any other. Charleston’s City Marina has the largest and busiest transient boating facility on the U.S. East Coast, with more than 1,500 feet of floating dock space. Imagine both sides of that lined up bow to stern with the most impressive sportfishing boats in the world and you get billfishing’s grandest arena. Nowhere else can family and friends get this close to the action. Everyone can gather each evening on the docks to watch as the boats return with their daily prize catches. Participants may fi sh two out of the three days from July 6-8. Event details are at megadocktournament.com.

The fishing action moves to The Marina at Edisto Beach for the Governor’s Cup final event, Wednesday, July 19th to Saturday, July 22nd. Captains may run their boats two of the three days from Thursday to Saturday. The scales are open for weigh-in Thursday and Friday from 5PM to 8PM and Saturday from 5PM to 7PM. Spectators are invited to watch the weigh-in and stay for the tournament awards presented Saturday at 8:30PM.
