San Juan International Billfish Tournament
- San Juan, Puerto Rico
- 89° / 83°
Around the world, the International is recognized for the abundance of blue marlin just 20 minutes off the North coast of San Juan; its fabulous and classy prizes; the most exclusive visiting group of anglers from the world; four days of extraordinary fishing; and last but not least, the excellence and hospitality of its people that has set this world-class event apart from the rest.
Since deep waters surround Puerto Rico, it is highly possible to find a majestic blue somewhere around the Island’s shores, although high season is on July, August and September, near full moon periods. Puerto Rico has achieved a worldwide place between the game fishing connoisseurs. They recognize the Island’s potential, specially on the “Billfish Pass”, better known a “Blue Marlin Alley”, a natural geological trench about a mile and a half off the North coast of San Juan, and where at deeps of only 100 fathoms a blue marlin can be caught. For the most experienced anglers, Puerto Rico is a paradise for blue marlin fishing because when they talk about catching a big specimen, it is one of the best choices.
