The 2015 Custom Shootout was held May 13-16, 2015 out of Abaco Beach Resort and Marina, Bahamas. Fifty-two custom built sportfishing yachts entered teams in the 14th annual fund-raising tournament.
The second leg of the 2015 Bahamas Billfish Championship recently wrapped up down in rustic Green Turtle Cay in the Abacos and it was a great fishing tournament, not to mention a good time!
The popularity of the Annual Custom Shootout continues to grow as this year’s event held at The Abaco Beach Resort and Boat Harbour saw over fifty boats signup and fish the tournament.
No one enjoyed the first ever Bahamas Billfish Championship tournament at Green Turtle Cay more than Joe Possillico, owner of the winning boat Torta. Joe had a great three days of fishing for Team Torta. The 61’ Viking from Farmingdale, New York released three blue marlin, one white marlin and a sailfish to clinch victory in the second leg of the 2014 Bahamas Billfish Championship. Team Torta released fish each day of the tournament to earn a total of 2100 points.
The Treasure Cay Billfish Tournament (TCBT) will celebrate its 30th anniversary June 1-7, 2013 at beautiful Treasure Cay Beach Marina & Golf Resort, Abaco, Bahamas. Known for its great fishing, excellent value and fun social events, the world-class competition attracts teams from around the world.
The Bahamas Billfish Championship kicked-off its 40th anniversary celebration by publishing five online ‘yearbooks’ with images of the people and events that made the Series memorable. According to Al Behrendt, BBC president, “There are over 2,600 images divided into five volumes that will transport viewers on a trip down memory lane in any decade they select.” Many of the images were digitized from old black and white photographs, negatives and 35mm film slides. “It is fascinating to see the contrast in boats and fishing tackle of the 1970’s and those of the last decade,” Behrendt added. Publishing the online yearbooks is the first in a series of promotions designed to call attention to the fact that the Bahamas Billfish Championship is the world’s oldest billfish tournament series.
