The Mayor's Cup

 

Sea Vee / Mercury Mayor's Cup website
One of the most prestigious billfish tournament in the world, the Mayor's Cup sets a new standard. "The Cup" is contested each year as the winner of the tournament presents "The Cup" to the winning team's Mayor and City Hall. In it's first year, "The Cup" was won by a team from Chicago. So "The Cup" spent it's first year of existence in the Windy City. Since that time, "The Cup" has remained in the City of Miami. In 2006, the Cup was won by "Wound Up" who wound up taking home over $93,000.00 in cash prizes!

 

Sailfish Kickoff

 

TheSailfish Kickoff website
The Sailfish Kickoff takes place right at the Ocean Promotions docks in Miami. The "Kickoff" is the true begriming of the South Florida Sailfish Season. During December, the sailfish action lights up and the fishing is red hot. In 2005, the anglers fishing in the Sailfish Kickoff set a world record by releasing 400 sailfish in one day of fishing! That translates into one sailfish being released every minute and 10 seconds.

 

Kingfish Masters

 

Kingfish Masters website
The kingfish world has been without an event in South Florida for many years. That all changed this past March with the introduction of the Kingfish Masters. The Kingfish Masters is part of the SKA's Division 10 lineup. The tournament made a huge splash with nearly 100 boats competing in the inaugural event. Anglers were treated to taste of South Florida with a full-out Paella awards dinner. First place was a beautiful boat!

 

Dewar's 12 Billfish Championship

 

Billfish Championship Series website
The Billfish Championship Series celebrates everything anglers love about sportsfishing: being on the ocean, great competition, camaraderie…and now Half a Million Dollars! Fishing tournaments are a way in which anglers compete for bragging rights and money; $500,000.00 to be exact. The Billfish Championship Series Rings will be awarded to the team which releases the most billfish during a two-tournament series. The season is comprised of Sailfish Kickoff and The Mayor’s Cup.

King of Bimini
King of Bimini - International SKA Tournament website
For the first time ever, the SKA will hit the high seas and head over to Bimini, Bahamas. Bimini is only 50 miles from Miami, so it's a short run to the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas....and MONSTER KINGFISH. The areas in North Bimini are home to the largest kingfish in the region, and SKA anglers will have a chance to win $100,000.00 cash for catching a king over 93 pounds. And there is a great chance that this can happen, especially in the areas known as the Great Isaacs and the Gingerbread Grounds. Teams will trailer down to Miami where their trailers will be kept in a secure lot. Then there will be a group crossing over to the island. We have great parties, incredible fishing, a poker tournament, and more in store for the participants.
