Port Denarau will once again become the toast of the game fishing enthusiast this year with the 2013 sponsored Fiji Islands Classic Game Fishing Tournament to be held from July12thth to 14th 2013.

The Fiji Islands Classic Game Fishing Tournament is being organised by the Denarau Game & Sports Fishing Club and offers offshore sport fishers a chance to experience the rush of screaming reels and bent rods.

Organizers of the event expect to attract at least 20 vessels with some 100 local and international anglers participating in this exciting sport.

With over $30,000 worth of prizes and various trophies up for grabs, the event promises to be highly competitive and exciting one. The majority of anglers no doubt will be focusing their efforts on targeting bill fish for maximum points.

Boats will depart Denarau Marina daily and return by 5 pm each evening for the daily weigh in spectacle. Here the day?s catches are weighed and points awarded to participating anglers. Spectators are welcome to come and witness some of the surrounding oceans bigger catches.
