41st Spice Island Billfish Tournament Grander in 2010 | All at Sea

by Jonathan

The most popular fishing tournament in the southern Caribbean just got even more attractive with the introduction of a record EC$100,000 (US$40,000) prize for the first person to catch a Blue Marlin over 1,000 pounds (known as a “Grander”) at Grenada’s Spice Island Billfish Tournament (SIBT) January 24 to 28.

Although this is no easy task, fish this large are known to swim in Grenada's waters, as marlin exceeding 1500 lbs. have been caught commercially, and many large ones have been lost by sport fishing boats.
