Welcome to the 2017 “Big Game Battle” website.
It is our 16th year anniversary! Who would have guessed that after starting with 3 boats we now have over 50 boats and we continue to grow. We especially want to thank our participants and sponsors who really make this event happen. As we grew bigger we thought it was a great way to give back. We have previously supported many charities at The Big Game Battle including: Juvenile Diabetes, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, The Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester, The Nantucket S.T.A.R. Program, ALS, Camp Harbor View, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, and The International Rett Syndrome Foundation. This year we will be working with The Dana-Farber Cancer Research Institute and The Jimmy Fund to support Leukemia Research and Patient Care. Please see our online donation page link if you wish to donate!
This summertime event is an offshore sport fishing tournament held on the history rich Island of Nantucket. We will fish East or South of the Island for a wide variety of game fish from Bluefin, Yellowfin, Albacore, Mahi Mahi, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Big Eye and more. The Nantucket Boat Basin is centrally located to fish these waters. The Island also boasts an active night life. The hospitality of the Dock Master and Professional Crews has been most accommodating since the inception of this event in 2002. This is not a “money” tournament. We do support the competition between the boats and crews. However, our most important goal is to have a fun weekend away with friends and come home with many memorable stories.
