Elbow Cay Abaco
10 - 13 Apr
This is the first leg of the Abaco Diamond Series and the perfect transition from sailfish to blue marlin season.
15 - 18 May
This is the second leg of The Abaco Diamond Series, and the lineup reads like a regular who's who of today's billfish tournament circuit. Production boats challenge the custom boats in this all-release format to settle the age-old debate. Think you've got what it takes?
The Bahamas' most elite fishing tournament offers $100,000 in cash prizes (based on 40 boats). An average of about 40-50 invitations are sent out, placing anglers in the center of one of the top Marlin fishing spots in the world.
The goal of this annual initiative is to protect our waters by controlling the numbers of invasive lionfish in a fun and educational competition. Up for grabs will be cash and prizes, along with the opportunity to enjoy a taste of the lionfish cooked on the spot.
