International Billfish Tournament

Many offshore anglers across the globe have fished or know the uniqueness of the International Billfish Tournament (IBT) of Club Náutico de San Juan. This year the tournament will be held October 15-21 with the waxing gibbous moon of October set just right for the event, water temperatures ideal and the opportunity to fish at the world famous Blue Marlin alley.

“Now a days it’s all about the experience and we provide the best yachts and fishing grounds to fish a tournament to remember,” says Salvador Egea, Jr., chairman of the 65th anniversary edition, tournament leader for a third year in a row. “You can start fishing a shotgun away from shore and you can either fish with your same team all four fishing days (IGFTO observer on board) or use the rotating angler’s system whereas visiting anglers can fish in a different yacht every day.”

The IBT offers the best sportfishing yachts in the Caribbean, and the most renown anglers in the sport. It is an all release tournament fishing on 30-pound test line and with IGFA rules. Don’t miss the opportunity to fish a truly awesome tournament!
