Welcome to the 50th Anniversary of the 2019 Budget Marine Spice Island Billfish Tournament
The Budget Marine Spice Isle Billfish Tournament is held every year around the month of January over four days. The tournament has three days of fishing with one rest day before the last. The general buzz of the tournament comes to life around the week before the opening briefing; boats from all over arrive at the Grenada Yacht Club for their choice spot on the docks. The atmosphere is electric, with social gatherings at the stern of joined up boats and music to complement.The tournament kicks off with the angler’s briefing the evening before the first day. The first fishing day begins with a Bimini start, where participating boats line up at the same time to make a synchronized charge to their favored fishing grounds. Developing every year towards a full release tournament has helped us achieve longevity in the sport of fishing as an event in the region. Conservation is a key aspect of our tournament, however it has taken away from the spectator aspect of the sport. Less fish are brought to the scale unless they are in contention for breaking the existing record.
