Lionfish tournament set for the Bahamas

The second annual Lionfish Bash will be held Friday through Sunday at the Bimini Sands Resort & Marina on South Bimini in the Bahamas.

The event was created in 2011 to raise awareness about lionfish, an invasive species that poses a threat to the Bahamas and Florida ocean ecosystem.

The bash combines a weekend of fishing and entertainment with an environmental education theme and it will raise money to benefit spinal injury patients. The first Lionfish Bash raised $20,000 on behalf of The Woody Foundation, which donated the full amount to the Jackson Rehabilitation Hospital in Miami.

Participants this year will enjoy a day of spearfishing, a welcome happy hour and an awards dinner. Prizes will be awarded for the largest lionfish, the smallest lionfish, the largest junior angler lionfish and the most lionfish caught.

The entry fee of $150 a boat for guests staying at Bimini Sands also includes a goodie bag, T-shirts and raffle tickets. Participants receive 10 percent off dockage and condo rentals at Bimini Sands Resort & Marina. The event also is open to people who do not stay at the Bimini Sands Resort & Marina for an entry fee of $200.
