September 20 – 25: 60th Annual International Marlin Tournament.
The Montego Bay Yacht Club (MBYC) in Jamaica hosts this annual event that celebrates its diamond anniversary. “It is a ‘Catch & Release’ tournament in which only fish measuring more than 99 inches or weighing over 300-pounds are permitted to be landed. Points are gained for a successful release and the team with the most release points over three days is declared the winner. Our event includes separate tournaments for canoe fishermen and children. IGFA rules apply,” says Bertram Clarke, MBYC Commodore. The tournament features a Bimini or Shotgun start and prize giving at the end.
