Fall Fun Fishing Derby tourney today off St. Croix
The Golden Hook Fishing Club will hold its Fall Fun Fishing Derby tournament today in the waters off of St. Croix.
The day-long tournament will be held under “jungle rules,” with no sharks, barracudas or billfish allowed.
However, swordfish will be allowed, and all fish must be a qualifying legal catch.
Lines can go in the water no earlier than 12:01 a.m. today morning, and all entrants must return to Green Cay Marina in Christiansted by 3 p.m. for weigh-in.
All qualified entries will have their names placed in a hat, with one name being drawn to determine the Fall Fun Fishing Derby winner. Second place will receive an in-kind gift, as will all boats that participate in the tournament.
2020 Wahoo Windup tournament on Sunday
Entries are now open for the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club’s 2020 Wahoo Windup tournament, scheduled for Sunday.
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.
Entrants can register online at www.vigfc.com.
The entry fee is $350 per boat through today. The entry fee is for four rods per boat, with each additional rod adding $50.
