SC Governor’s Cup Edisto Invitational Billfish Tournament


Each year the South Carolina Governor’s Cup Billfishing Series hosts its final leg on Edisto Beach. The tournament is designed to promote the state’s bill fishing tournament industry, increase coastal tourism, and encourage the conservation of ocean resources through the tagging and release of billfish.

The Edisto leg begins on Wednesday with a Captain’s Meeting. All boats that enter the tournament get to choose 2 out of 3 available days to fish: Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. There is a daily weigh-in from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at The Marina at Edisto Beach.

Each evening after the weigh-in there is live music and family fun next to the Marina at Bay Creek Park.
