Fishing Pic 1Have you recently purchased new real estate in Pensacola? Then head down to the Palafox Pier and join in on the 45th annual Pensacola International Billfish Tournament.

This fishing tournament has been a tradition in Pensacola since 1970 and over 22,000 anglers have participated in its lifetime. The event starts on June 29, 2016 and ends on July 3, 2016. The boats leave the docks at 4 PM on Thursday evening and return on Friday for the first round of weigh-ins at 5 PM. There will be another weigh-in on Saturday at 3 PM to end the tournament. If you are unable to hop on a boat and fish in the tournament, it is still exciting to see what the boats bring in. The weigh-ins are free and open to the public, so bring your family out to the docks to see the fish!

The tournament is hosted by the Pensacola Big Game Fishing Club, and it has grown to be one of the biggest in our area.

Thousands of dollars in cash prizes will be given out during the tournament. The Vince Whibbs Big Blue Award, Top Small Boat, Top Friday Boat, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place payouts to the biggest Tuna, Dolphin and Wahoo are just a few examples of the awards given during the tournament.

The Pensacola International Billfish Tournament is a great way to get better acquainted with your new home now that you own Pensacola real estate! Pensacola Big Game Fishing Club wants you to be a part of this great tradition.
