Fishermen will gear-up their boats this weekend for the third annual BK Big Fish tournament. The tournament was originally slated to commence on March 7th but was called off due to unfavourable weather. It was then rescheduled for the following weekend but got postponed until further notice after government’s COVID-19 restrictions came into effect.
“After a long break we are excited to resume the BK Big Fish,” said Cayman Islands Angling Club president Frank Thompson.
Boats that registered for the tournament back in March are automatically registered to compete this weekend. However, the final day for new registrations ends on Friday (11 September).
“The weather forecast for this weekend looks great so we encourage everyone to sign up and enjoy a great weekend on the water with family and friends,” said Thompson.
The tournament will also highlight the importance of conservation with its catch and release initiative. “Registered teams are encouraged to make sure they have their measuring tapes and release cards ahead of Saturday’s fishing.”
Over 40-thousand dollars will be on the line to be won in cash and prizes. Teams can register online at www.fishcayman.com. Prize giving will take place on Monday (14 September) at the Harbour Grille, Grand Harbour at 7pm.
