The Barbados International Game Fishing Tournament began on April 19 and will continue through April 23, at Port St. Charles. The Barbados International Fishing Tournament is one of the premier fishing events in the Southern Caribbean, and attracts participants from across the region and internationally each year.
Description: The 2017 tournament will again be staged at the Port St. Charles Marina in St. Peter and will feature anglers and their families from places such as Antigua, Grenada, Guadeloupe, England, Italy, Martinique, Jamaica, Scotland, St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Trinidad & Tobago and the United States of America. The tournament is certified as a qualifying event for the annual IGFA (International Game Fishing Association) Offshore World Championships, and also forms part of the Southern Caribbean Billfish Circuit.
The 2017 event is expected to continue to be a big success, and previous years has seen an average of 35 boats and 225 anglers participating, with some spectacular catches being recorded as the teams revel in the magnificent conditions. Apart from the fishing, there is much dockside activity to help liven the event, and each evening sees hundreds of people gathered to witness the boats arriving with their catch, as well as to join in the festivities such as cocktail parties, a fashion show, wine-tasting, live band, music, happy hour drinks, pig-roast and fish fry to name a few.
