Sport fishing is a big deal here and one of the prize fish is the Blue Marlin.
Just 20 minutes off the north coast of Puerto Rico is a large area where the blue marlin fish are easy to find especially in the late summer. Every year the International Billfish Tournament occurs for about a week of deep sea fishing, classy parties and elegant ambiance.
The tournament is 60 years old and is an all-inclusive event. The event is held at Club Nautico de San Juan and allows deep-sea anglers to enjoy the camaraderie, team spirit and the comfortable 50-foot yachts. The event goes from 8am-5pm for 4 consecutive days and requires the participants to utilize 50# test line.
