The Kingfish Cup is run by Captain Brandt and the Ocean Isle Fishing Center (OIFC) out of Ocean Isle, NC. 120 teams compete over a course of four qualifying events to earn an invitation to a Championship event which can pay out over $100,000 to its winner. The Kingfish Cup qualifying events are the Jolly Mon, Got’em On, Fall Brawl and Rumble King Mackerel tournaments. Kingfish Cup Teams will fish these four events to amass the highest three fish point total; there will be one drop weight available out of the four events. The 30 teams that amass the highest three fish point total will receive an invitation to compete in the Kingfish Cup Championship event. In addition, any Kingfish Cup team that wins 1st place in a qualifying event will earn an invitation to the Championship; thus the largest possible field to fish the Kingfish Cup Championship will be 34 boats. The Championship event will be held in November on Ocracoke Island, NC.
