Kingfish Shootout Returns To Frenchtown June 2; Top Cash Prize Of $2K Will Be Awarded For Biggest Catch

News / Sports / Virgin Islands / May 12, 2019

The Committee for the Betterment of Carenage announced Friday the return of the Kingfish Shootout on Sunday, June 2. Once again, a top prize of $2,000 awaits the angler who reels in the largest kingfish. 

“After a one year absence, CBC resumes the kingfish tournament. The shootout is part of an ongoing effort to build the tournament into a day of fun and merriment for the entire family. This one-day event provides anglers with an opportunity for fun on the water in competition for the big one as well as a land based gathering for the whole family. In addition, the tournament is named in the memory of Herman Richardson, who died earlier this year and had served as our weighmaster for a number of years,” said Gail Danet Joseph, chairperson of the tournament.

The shootout event features fishing from early in the morning with a mandatory weigh-in at the Gustave Quetel Fishing Center by 1 p.m. Once again, Offshore Marine returns as a banner sponsor along with Guardian Insurance. In addition to the top prize, a number of other prizes will be awarded in categories that include but are not limited to: second and third largest kingfish; largest bonito; largest amberjack; largest mackerel; largest barracuda; best boat; best captain; best male and female angler and best junior angler.

At the Gustave Quetel Fish House as each angler’s catch is weighed in and recorded, there will be an assortment of food and drinks on sale. Winners of the tournament will be announced on Sunday, June 16 at 7 p.m. as part of the Father’s Day weekend celebration. 

Tournament registration takes place at the Joseph Aubain Ball Park in Frenchtown on Friday, May 31 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., and on Saturday, June 1, from 9 am – 5 pm. Entry fee is $35.00 per angler.
