The Big Island Marlin Tournament was founded in Kona in 1986. This event, the first of its kind to pay a cash purse for tag-and-release, will be held August 21-23, 2020 and was the first Big Game Sportfishing Tournament of its kind in Hawaii. The top three largest marlin of the tournament are paid from the base purse, and optional daily purses pay the most points and largest marlin each day of the tournament.
