Lowcountry "Fish Scales" Home Page


  The S.C. Memorial Billfish Challenge was established in 2008
in memory of those in the Lowcountry Billfish
community who have died.

The tournament is designed to recognize those
individuals by rasing funds to create an
offshore reef as a permanent memorial.

Boats participating in the tournament not only
help honor lives lost, but also have an
opportunity to promote our offshore fisheries
by helping create a new offshore reef.
