History

The Beach Haven White Marlin Invitational
is the longest running White Marlin tournament in the United States.

For more than sixty years, the Beach Haven Marlin and Tuna Club has lived up to its name. Every summer its members head offshore to troll the endless waves for the thrill of a strike. They know that no one stays calm when a tuna hits and the reel sings! The line streaks out – someone yells FISH. And the chase is on. Carrying on a sportfishing tradition more than a century and a half old, the Club honors that special relationship that great fish have with those who seek them.
