BIMINI Big Game Club Resort and Marina, host to some of The Bahamas' most legendary fishing tournaments, is pleased to announce that Wahoo Smackdown IX is all set for November 9-12.
The ever-popular and authentic Bahamian offshore tournament, led by longtime Bimini Big Game Club dockmaster, Captain Robbie Smith, has drawn thousands of anglers to the island since its inception and has become an annual tradition for many.
With more than 50-record-setting catches from the waters that surround the island, Bimini has earned its title of sport fishing capital of the world and, come winter, is considered a prime location for wahoo due to its position in the Gulf Stream.
Wahoo Smackdown IX is slated to kickoff November 9 with a Captain's meeting and conclude on November 12th with an awards gala.
The registration fee is $1,500 per boat (includes four anglers, tournament shirts and entry to social events).
Additional anglers (over four) are $250 each. Extra social tickets are $150 each.
Total payout is $25,000 based on 25 registered boats.
Registration fee is 100 per cent refundable if the tournament is cancelled due to weather.
A $300 instant credit will be issued for entries that book both hotel and boat slip for a minimum of a four consecutive nights.
The $300 credit can be used in the restaurant or applied to the total resort bill.
