2020 Wahoo Windup fishing tournament set for Nov. 22

Entries are now open for the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club’s 2020 Wahoo Windup tournament, scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 22.

The entrants are limited to fishing in U.S. Virgin Islands waters only, with lines in the water no earlier than 6:30 a.m. All boats must check in at the St. Thomas Yacht Club by 4 p.m. for weigh-in.

The top prize in the 2020 Wahoo Windup is a $10,000 bonus for the angler who lands a wahoo weighing 75 or more pounds.

That feat has been accomplished three times in the tournament’s history: in 2003 by Mike Kuszewski, who landed a 94.1-pounder aboard St. Thomas-based charter boat “Black Pearl;” in 2012 by Clive Mahabir, a 91.3-pounder aboard St. John-based charter boat “Mixed Bag;” and in 2017 by Adrianne Baird Butler, who landed a 76.3-pounder aboard St. Thomas-based charter boat “Silver Fox.”

Prizes will also be awarded to the anglers landing the top three wahoo (by weight), and to the Top Boat as determined by the total weight caught.

“Everyone could use some stress-relief right now, and what better way than to grab your bubble of family or friends and spend a day out on the water fishing,” Kelvin Bailey Jr., president of the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club’s board of directors, said in a prepared release.

“You can keep your catch. All we’ll do is weigh it. We’ll let the winners know later that day. The more people who enter, the more prizes.”

Entrants can register online at www.vigfc.com.

The early registration fee is $200 per boat until Tuesday, Nov. 17, then the entry fee rises to $350 per boat through Saturday, Nov. 21.

The entry fee is for four rods per boat, with each additional rod adding $50.
