Bahamas Sport Fishing Tournaments Calendar 2019-2020

Hemingway Family with Marlins

Hemingway Family with Marlins 1935

Bahamas sportfishing icon Ernest Hemingway frequented these storied waters nearly one hundred years ago. Today, they are just as spectacular a fishing locale.

Angling enthusiasts pit their skills against giant tuna and enormous white and blue marlin, along with barracuda, amberjack, bonefish, and tarpon. With such variety and abundance, it is easy to understand the lure to world-class competitors.
