The 25th Bonaire International and Local Fishing Tournament Is January 17-19, 2013
2013 will mark the 25th year that Bonaire has hosted the International & Local Fishing Tournament. It will be held once again from January 17 through 19, 2013 and boasts of over $15,000 in prizes, besides being a lot of fun!
The international competitors will have breakfast, lunch, and dinner in their packages, and the buffets are also open to the public, so those desiring a chat with these anglers and to cheer them on are always welcome to attend as well.
Registration will be held on the first day--Thursday, January 17th. Those competing in the International Category will fish on Friday and Saturday, January 18th and 19th, and the locals will have a go at it on Sunday, January 19th. There’s no restrictions in the size of boats for either category, so the more, the merrier. The International Category is Bill-Fish Catch and Release, while the Local Tournament is planned for fish for consumption and will be divided between large and small boats.
On Saturday, January 19th, there will be a Ship-to-Shore Boat Party for those who want to party or just relax after a great day of fishing.
