Lucaya International School (LIS) is once again organizing a way for everyone to "Catch the Fun" at their annual community-favorite Fishing Fling Tournament & Splash Bash After-Party—to be held this year on Saturday, May 26, 2012 at the Grand Bahama Sailing Club.
Anglers begin fishing at 6:00am, with weigh-ins from 6:30-8:30pm at the Grand Bahama Sailing Club. After that, whether or not you've been fishing that day, everyone gathers to celebrate the day's catches and more fun with dinner, cash bar, a top-notch silent auction, a DJ cranking out tunes, and dancing as part of the Splash Bash After Party. (Mermaids were even sighted at last year's event!) Last year's inaugural event made quite a splash, and this year's event is already set up to top it.
Organizers are thrilled to announce Jamie Rose, of OBS Marine Ltd. as the Fishing Fling Tournament Director, and Colin Rose as Weigh Master. Colin is a 7-time IGFA world record holder for species including blackfin tuna, horse-eyed jack, rainbow runner, and skipjack tuna.
Boats needing anglers (or anglers needing boats!) can be hooked up by contacting the tournament director at 727.6395. Angler registration forms, rules & regs, a silent auction prize preview, and party details can be found at www.lispta.com
