The Guana Cay leg of the 2016 Bahamas Billfish Championship went off without a hitch last week, concluding with an exciting awards dinner at Sunsetters restaurant at Orchid Bay Marina where ‘Bamboo,’ owned by Bill Canida, took top honors. ‘Wave Paver’ (owned by Jr. Davis and captained by Russell Sinclair) and ‘Sandrita’ (owned by Kevin Fish and captained by Kyle Sherman) took second and third place, respectively.
It was a race to the finish for Southern Comfort, who captured top honors at the 30th Annual Treasure Cay Billfish Tournament (TCBT), June 2-7 at Treasure Cay Beach, Marina & Golf Resort, Abaco, Bahamas. Owned by Peter Angel, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Southern Comfort clinched First Place on the last day of fishing when they released their fourth blue marlin
Cowpoke’s decisive win at the Treasure Cay Championship propelled the Avon Park, Florida team into first place in the overall 2013 Bahamas Billfish Championship standings. Despite the lead, Cowpoke needed a strong performance in the final tournament of the Series to ensure the overall title.
As has been the case many times over the past 40-years, the Bahamas Billfish Champion is decided at the final tournament of the season. This year is no exception.
