Lauderdale billlfish tournament has new format


The Marine Industries Association of South Florida is hosting its 45th annual Fort Lauderdale Billfish Tournament this month.

The tournament offers a one-day offshore fishing competition out of three inlets, allowing anglers of all skill levels to compete close to home. Entry fees start at $650 for four anglers with early entry.

Although the event showcases sailfish as the target species, other competitive divisions include dolphin, wahoo and kingfish. The diversity offers anglers a competitive fishing experience and an exceptional tournament purse. The 2010 prize payout should approach $200,000.

The event runs Nov. 18-21.
