PESCADORA BILLFISH TOURNAMENT
The Pescadora Billfish Championship is a unique tournament. Not only is this billfishing event specifically for women, but brings experienced and non-experienced female anglers together to compete for the title of the World’s Top Lady Anglers! This event was designed to not just be a tournament. The goal is to encourage women to step out of their comfort zone through competition. Whether than means catching their first billfish, hooking their own fish, holding a rod all day to make them that much faster to the drop back, learning to fish with a different type of tackle that they aren’t familiar with, or learning how to catch and release a billfish in stand-up gear…. they are all pieces to the puzzle that can help women be successful no matter where in the world they fish.
