Grab your rods and reels — the Sportsfishing season is here!

The dual-sport event kicks off with the Mikie Pigott Jr. Memorial Marlin Classic this Friday, the 18th of May, where anglers will put their angling skills to the test in the US$1,000 Buy-In, Winner-Takes-It-All Billfish Tournament.

Hot on the heels of the Marlin tournament is the 52nd Antigua & Barbuda Sports Fishing Tournament, spreading over the 19th and 20th of May. The best angler to break the Blue Marlin Tournament record, of 771.25lbs, wins the US$100,000 cash prize. In addition to cash and bragging rights, the lucky angler will earn an invite to fish in the 2019 Offshore World Championships. 

The event isn't only fun for fishermen, it has entertainment for everyone! Join hundreds of spectators for the incredible dockside socials and get a glimpse of the day's top fish at the weigh-ins, every evening. Bimini start is on Saturday at 6:00 am. Lines are out at 4:30 pm on Saturday and 4:00 pm on Sunday, and the boats will return to weigh in their catch, which will be up for sale in Nelson's Dockyard each day during the after-fishing lime. 

As an added bonus, Antigua Yacht Club Marina Resort has rooms at a special rate of US$100 plus 22.5% tax per night near all the fun. 

"Enjoy the Fishing, Enjoy the Lime", with a wide variety of food and drinks on sale, live music and much more.
