The Offshore World Championship will take place April 12-17 in the waters of Quepos, Costa Rica.
Last year's competition broke the record for the most billfish ever released in a tournament, with 2,735 returning to the blue waters.
The fishing town of Quepos and the newly built Marina Pez Vela hosted crews and boats that came from all over Costa Rica to fish the event.
The fleet of 64 international teams, with fishermen from 24 countries, saw doubles, triples and quads coming to the boats.
Situated at the edge of a tropical rain forest, the Parador Resort and Spa plays a part in the tournament, as well, once again hosting the Offshore World Championship in 2015.
Photos and video from last year’s tournament are available at the Offshore World Championship website.
