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.
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.
