We are proud to present the inaugural Magic City Sailfish Showdown! This year’s event will be held out of Black Market in Downtown Miami, Dec. 5-9, 2018. Black Market’s amazing location, mixed with easy accessibility along with their food and beverage, makes it a premier location ripe for an event like this.

Miami is the epicenter of sportfishing in Florida. With it’s proximity to the Bahamas, it is the perfect hopping off spot for summer ventures and hosts a winter fishery for sailfish that can be hotter than any other destination in the world! What is Miami without a premier early season sailfish tournament? It’s something that has been vacant from the 305 until now. The Magic City Sailfish Showdown offers a new FRESH approach to what has become the same cookie cutter events up and down the coast. Being fishermen, we understand that appreciating the dollar goes a long way. With that in mind, this is a tournament where all the extra added entry options (calcuttas) are left untouched. That means whatever a participant puts in they get back.  The entry levels give options to every body from the penny pincher to the high roller.
