Governor's Cup Billfishing Series

The Governor's Cup Billfishing Series is an annual umbrella event encompassing many of South Carolina's billfish tournaments. A concept of former S.C. Governor Carroll A. Campbell, the Series is designed to promote the state's billfishing tournament industry, increase coastal tourism and encourage the conservation of ocean resources through the release of billfish. Prior to the Governor's Cup, less than ten percent of billfish caught were released. Inspired by the conservation message of the Series, anglers are now releasing record numbers of billfish caught in South Carolina waters. For more information, please visit the Series website
