The 2012 International Game Fish Association Offshore World
Championship is starting up this weekend. There are plenty
of great prizes and lots of prestige for the fishermen.
Everyone is already a winner since to be invited to compete
in this tournament you have to have won a qualifying IGFA
tournament and be invited to this tournament.
There have been some rule clarifications to make the
tournament easier to police. This year the rules state that
each team gets a different boat each day and has to use
that captain to keep it a level playing field. Circle hooks
are to be used on any natural bait. Twenty-four dead baits
are being supplied to each boat, but the boats can fish for
their own live bait using the required 30 pound Momoi Hi-
vis fluorescent yellow line.
This year there are 46 teams representing more than 20
countries participating in the tournament. The real
excitement will start tomorrow night with the rules
briefing and boat draw followed by the kickoff dinner. From
Team Picante and all the Picantesportfishing.com employees,
good luck to all the participants and crews. And as can be
seen in the photo: Bienvenidos.
Why are some sport fishing charters head and shoulders above the others?
Why are some fishing charters more enjoyable, while others are just a glorified boat ride?
