Mikie Pigott Jr. Memorial Classic & 53rd Antigua & Barbuda Sports Fishing Tournament
June 7, 2019 - June 9, 2019
The marlin-only Classic takes place June 7, with the main tournament with billfish and gamefish divisions follows on June 8 and 9. “The grand prize of US $100,000 is still up for grabs if a boat is able to Set a New Record Weight for Blue Marlin within the two days of fishing. Our current Blue Marlin record is 771.25-pounds, and in 2017, this was almost broken by Team Tahla’O with a 734-pounder on the last day,” explains organizer, Robert Hall. No record breaker, no worries. Cash and prizes total over US $22,000. What makes this event a top tournament is its mix of close proximity to the fishing grounds, talented fleet of local and visiting anglers, and evening food and music hosted in World Heritage Site, Nelson’s Dockyard.
