Just 50 miles east of south Florida in The Bahamas, many consider Bimini to be the “Sport Fishing Capital” of the world. Anglers have made more than 50 record-setting catches in the waters surrounding Bimini Big Game Club. It has long been a favorite fishing destination, including famed author, Ernest Hemingway.

This year’s tournament, which will be led by longtime Bimini Big Game Club dockmaster Captain Robbie Smith, will kick-off Thursday, Nov. 8 with a captain’s meeting and conclude on Nov. 11 with an awards gala.
