Big Rock Tournament

The Big Rock Tournament will take place June 9-18, 2023 in Morehead City, North Carolina. Among the largest and oldest sport fishing tournaments in the country, The Big Rock calls avid deep-sea fishermen to North Carolina’s Crystal Coast for a full week of angling and community celebration.

This year’s Big Rock Tournament is the 65th Anniversary of its inception—a true testament to the spirit of Carteret County. Over the course of the last half-century, many boats have docked here, many tourists have gathered here, and many Morehead City natives have come and gone.
