Pensacola Ladies Billfish Tournament

The 37th Annual Pensacola Ladies Billfish Tournament will be held this weekend, May 13 – 15 at Lost Key Marina in Perdido Key. There will be a Captain’s Meeting at 7:30 p.m. at Lost Key Marina. Boats may leave after the Captain’s Meeting from any designated pass. On Saturday, the scales open from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Awards and brunch will be on Sunday, May 15 starting at 10:00 a.m.

Since its inception in 1970, the Pensacola Big Game Fishing Club has been the host to the country’s largest billfish tournaments. The first gathering, launched in 1971 as a club affair, involved only a handful of boats and anglers. Rapidly the attraction developed a reputation as the premier fishing tradition and turned a three-day bluewater Gulf of Mexico deep sea fishing competition into the sporting event of the year, luring a record number of anglers and boats from across the nation.
