Held in mid-May of every year, the Orange Beach Billfish Classic is a staple in local Gulf Shores events. Anglers from all over come to attempt to catch the biggest billfish and win the honor of a trophy and being named fishing team of the year, all in the name of The Billfish Foundation—a conservation organization dedicated to advocating for fishery management solutions and improving the stock of the Atlantic billfish. All proceeds from the event go to The Billfish Foundation.
