FREEPORT, GRAND BAHAMA – For the first time ever, Grand Bahama will host a fishing tournament like none the island’s seen before! April 24th- 27th, 2014, anglers from throughout the United States will travel to beautiful Grand Bahama to participate in Extreme Kayak Fishing’s ‘Battle In The Bahamas’.
Extreme Kayak Fishing’s ‘Battle In The Bahamas’ is a two-day game-fishing tournament in “one of the most beautiful places in the world”. But unlike traditional fishing tournaments where anglers venture to sea on boats, this tournament calls for kayaks [and even paddleboards]. The last tournament that took place in Pompano Beach on September 27th, 2013 attracted some 82 anglers that traveled from various states including; Georgia, North Carolina and Texas.
Anglers will definitely be in for a treat with this second tournament in the Extreme Kayaking 2014 series, as our waters are known for big game fish including mahi-mahi/dorado, wahoo, billfish, and the ever-fierce tuna. So far, there are 60 registered participants, including one Bahamian resident, and coordinators Joe and Maria Hector, expect several more participants to hop on board.
The Bahamas’ Ministry of Tourism, and the Grand Bahama Island Tourism Board are proud to sponsor this event, as it presents a great opportunity to display the island’s appeal as a big game fishing destination. The island’s economy can expect an additional boost from this and similar events to come! Bahamian Brewery & Beverage Company will also be sponsoring this event, keeping contestants cool with lots of Sands Beer!
