Old South Marlin Club members hold multiple world records and compete in premier fishing tournaments around the globe each year. Our focus is on developing competitive teams through education, experience and old-fashioned grit and determination. 

Old South Marlin Club is proud of their support of multiple US Veteran organizations and also their affiliation with the Port Moresby Game Fishing Club of Papua, New Guinea.

Old South Marlin Club actively participates in world-wide conservation efforts for big game sport fish. We support efforts to minimize wasteful harvest practices and maximize the viability and recovery of these amazing animals. OSMC anglers emphasize Tag & Release conservation programs whenever possible in order to ensure the longevity of sport fishing species for generations to come.

Old South Marlin Club is a long -time partner of the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament (HIBT); one of the oldest billfish tournaments in the world. In addition to sporting multiple teams at this internationally televised event, Old South has become renown from throwing "The Famous Old South Marlin Club Party" at the Hawaii Big Game Fishing Clubhouse in Honokahau. This get-together is for all teams, boat crews, press crews and HIBT staff and nobody who is anybody misses it. This long standing HIBT tradition was started by R. Lupton Pittman, III and is the most popular event on the entire billfish tour!

Another beauty!
