Posted: 27-Jul-16 08:26

The dates for this year's International Blue Marlin Fishing Tournament in Cuba have been revealed as the country gears up to its celebration. Due to take place between 19th and 24th September 2016 in the famous Marina Hemmingway, this is the second biggest event of its kind in the island, after the Hemingway International Marlin Fishing Tournament, which is celebrated in May or June.

Dates revealed for Cuba's International Blue Marlin Fishing Tournament 2016

Eager fishermen and sports fishing enthusiasts around the world are now being formally invited to Cuba’s second biggest fishing tournament of the year as the dates for the upcoming International Blue Marlin Fishing Tournament are announced. Taking place from 19th to 24th September 2016 and calling on all keen fishing experts and aficionados, this event rescues a tradition that started several decades ago and now lives on to the delight of international participants.

The tournament’s programme has been detailed over the course of the competition’s six days. On the first day, competitors will be registered and invited to a meet & greet session with the captain. The following day kick-starts the tournament with the first day of fishing which rolls on to the second day. Tournament participants will then have the third day off to spend as they wish, perhaps partaking in a bit of sightseeing around Havana’s landmarks or leisurely taking in the city sights.

On 23rd September competitors have one more chance at catching sizeable marlins and scooping up the prize of the day. There’ll be one more final chance on the following day, which will end with an awarding ceremony and farewell party.

All the fishing trips of the tournament will sail away from Havana’s iconic Marina Hemmingway, home to yet another big event of this kind, the Hemingway International Marlin Fishing Tournament, a great introduction to marlin-fishing in Cuba for sport-fishing enthusiasts, the latest edition of which took place last June (from 13th to 18th).

What’s in it for the prize winners? While the details of the actual prizes haven’t been detailed yet, we do know of the different awards, which are as follows:

  • First place (Winner of the Tournament)
  • Second place
  • Third place
  • First-day catch
  • Second-day catch
  • Third-day catch
  • Fourth-day catch
  • Award for the woman who catches a blue marlin
  • Award for most tuna fish caught
  • Award for most gold marlin fish caught
  • Award to youngest fisherman

Sounds exciting and rewarding enough? Then all you have to do to enlist and participate in Cuba’s upcoming fishing adventure is register by contacting the event’s organisers via email or telephone.
