31st Annual Fiji International Game Fishing Tournament
This legendary game fishing competition held in Pacific Harbour, is set to return to the Fiji game fishing calendar with the revival of the Pacific Harbour Game Fishing Club and the newly opened Pearl South Pacific Marina.
Pacific Harbour is world renowned for its spectacular sport-fishing, where legendary game boats and professional captains have explored the sparkling pristine waters of the Beqa Lagoon and the enormous Astrolabe barrier reef in Kadavu.
This beautiful barrier reef is the fourth largest in the world.
Its rugged beauty reminds some of parts of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, where there are plenty of wide, deep openings and crystal clear, calm lagoons.
Along the outside edge of the reef, the cobalt Pacific drops away sharply, and as every local fisherman knows, this is where the big wahoo hunt.
The tournament fleet will be hosted by the Pearl South Pacific Marina.
Designed by Australian-based Marina International, designer of Singapore's Keppel Bay Marina and Dubai's 3km, 800 berth Marina, the new $8m Marina at the Pearl South Pacific Resort is a welcome addition to the Coastline of Fiji's main island of Viti Levu.
Offering not only a haven for visiting yachts and super yachts, but also easy access to the abundance of water based activities in and around the world-renowned Beqa Lagoon.
The attached resort, where most of the events will be held, features 4 categories of 4-star accommodation and boasts 5 restaurants, conveniently accommodating all tournament competitors in a central location, right outside their boats.
Previous tournaments have attracted high profile competitors from Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and the United States with local entries from as far afield as Savusavu in the north and Denarau in the west.
With interest extremely high, and with the record numbers of world class boats available in the country, this year, we expect to be well supported by local and International Anglers once again to this prestigious tournament.
The tournament will be held over 3 days and this year marks the first time the tournment is live-streamed to a social media audience through a combination of on-board action and Tow-Cam footage provided by FBC TV and live-action Facebook streaming to thousands of game-fishing enthusiasts around the world.
