Daily until June 18, 2016

One of the oldest (it turns 58 this year) and largest sportfishing tournaments in the country, Big Rock is a term well-known in the fishing arena. Named after an off-shore fishing site, the annual event involves gala parties and daily public weigh-ins at the Morehead City waterfront, but it’s all done for a good cause. This NC Governor’s Cup Series tournament offers prizes for marlin releases and weigh-ins for tuna, dolphin and wahoo. Total prize money tops $1 million annually. While the winners often walk away with a handsome purse, so do many area charities. Details: thebigrock.com or 252-247-3575.
