The Annual Billfish Tournament, based out of Pirate’s Cove in Manteo, is one of the most anticipated fishing tournaments on the Outer Banks. Tournament Week is 5 days of awesome sponsors, food, entertainment and fun for the crew and family. You’ll start the week with a party to meet the competitors and socialize, spend the next several days on the water, and come back at the end for the awards banquet.
This year, it’s all on the line – new non-profit ownership combined with proven management and the best, most loyal sponsors in the industry. The entry fees have been reduced and the ways to win have increased while simplifying the calcuttas. There will be bands, displays, live streaming VHF, air conditioning, a cool new real time scoring App – truly everything you ever wanted from Pirate’s Cove and some things you never knew you needed.
