FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Lucaya International School (LIS) is proud to announce its annual favourite fundraiser, the Fishing Fling Tournament on Saturday, May 26th.

Fishing begins at 6:00am, weigh-in from 6:30-8:30pm, followed by a celebration of the day’s catches at the Splash Bash! Come to fish, party, or both.

This year's festivities will take place at the GB Sailing Club, and will include a cash bar, dinner and dancing. Bring your party shoes along with your rod and reel!

This year organisers are thrilled to announce Jamie Rose, of OBS Marine Ltd. as Tournament Director. In addition to a grand cash prize, winners will have a chance to win merchandise prizes from OBS Marine.

Organisers are also excited to announce Colin Rose as Weigh Master. Colin is a 7-time IGFA world record holder for species including blackfin tuna, horse-eye jack, rainbow runner, and skipjack tuna. Needless to say, we have some expertise in the house!

May is peak tuna season in the Bahamas, so that will be the focus of local trolling. Prizes will also be awarded for snapper, mackerel and barracuda, among others.

Last year’s inaugural event was wildly successful, and this year’s event is already set up to top it.  So come cast into our world-renowned waters, and then live it up at a bash you won’t soon forget.
