The 42nd Annual White Marlin Open is just around the corner and Vantage Vacation Rentals is proud to be a sponsor of the world`s largest billfish tournament. The competition takes place August 3rd 7th. Over $1.29 million was awarded in 2014 and the stakes are even higher this year. Prizes will be awarded for largest White Marlin as well as Blue Marlin, Tuna, Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo, and Shark. There are also a variety of added-entry skill levels that boats can partake in to make the event even more exciting.
This event is just as entertaining for the spectators as it is for the Anglers. Fishing begins at 8:30 a.m. each day and ends at 3:30 p.m. Weigh-ins take place every evening from 4- 9 p.m. at Harbour Island Marina, on 14th Street and the bay. This is free to watch and definitely worth a few hours of your vacation.
Keep in mind that most boats will be coming in between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. each day, so if you`re trying to decide the best time to join the fun this would be your best bet. Not able to make it to the big event? No problem. There will be a White Marlin Cam so you can stay caught up on all the action. This will be available for Iphone/Ipad and Android as well.
