Since 2003, InTheBite’s Captain of the Year Cup has celebrated the most successful tournament captains. It is still the world’s only quantifiable metric that ranks captains across five separate and geographically diverse tournament divisions – Florida, Hawaii, International, Gulf of Mexico and East Coast.
New for 2021 and using our division format we are introducing an optional paid entry winner-takes-all prize(s) for the heaviest marlin overall, the heaviest division marlin, *heaviest white marlin, most division points and most sailfish releases in Florida.
Our website, the official Reel Time app and every issue of InTheBite Magazine will be updated with leaderboard scores and anticipated prize money distribution upon the completion of each event. We are excited to offer you the opportunity and celebrate your Champion’s Cup success in 2021.
Winning a coveted Captain of the Year Cup is a longstanding tradition which will still be presented independently of the Champion’s Cup. However, we are excited to introduce a completely new format to the sportfishing industry where geographic regions can compete on a global scale.
* East Coast Division Only
