The 2015 Bahamas Billfish Championship (BBC) concluded this year with the Boat Harbour Championship Leg in Marsh Harbour. The tournament’s overall champion was Jr. Davis with the boat ‘Wave Paver.’ The Marsh Harbour leg ran from June 10-13. The BBC started late April with the Guana Cay Championship.
Overall second place was Luis Isaias in ‘Jichi’ and third overall was Robert Boyce in ‘Game Changer.’
The BBC, among the other fishing tournaments held in Abaco, provide a huge boost to the economy every year. With marina slips filled all over Abaco, the tournaments provide a welcome buffer between the main tourist seasons.
The Bahamas Billfish Championship is a world-class fishing tournament series founded in 1973. Taking place April through June each year, the five Championship tournaments are governed by a uniform set of rules for qualifying billfish. Anglers can fish any or all tournaments with cumulative points determining the overall Bahamas Billfish Champions.
