Let the Battle Season Begin

With major fishing tournaments such as the four-part Bahamas Billfish Championship series sponsored by Rolex to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars in prizes, the Custom Shootout donating hundreds of thousands to charity and the Abaco Blue Marlin Invitational laying down six figures worth of cold, hard cash – competitions here are serious business.

Except when they’re really fun. Which almost everything is here on Abaco, especially in the south. With a wonderfully relaxed lifestyle, unpressured fisheries and a safe harbour in the new community of Schooner Bay, South Abaco is a sportsman’s dream – to get the best of a tough day’s fight on the water, followed by an easy evening of great food, camaraderie and yes, those stories.
