Winners of the Governors Cup Billfishing Series are assured a place in the rich history of South Carolina. Each year, winning participants have their names engraved on a magnificent hand-carved perpetual trophy.

Hand-carved wooden trophies are presented to the Series champions for Outstanding Billfish, Outstanding Billfish Conservationist and Outstanding Boat and for the largest dolphin, tuna and wahoo. Awards are also presented to the outstanding female and youth anglers of the Series. The Governor presents these trophies to the winners at an annual gala reception.
