Buccaneer Cup Sailfish Release Tournament

January 19, 2017 - January 21, 2017


Get ready for the 54th Annual Buccaneer Cup Sailfish Release Tournament, one of the most widely recognized billfish tournaments in the world. The Buccaneer Cup is a non-profit event that donates all its proceeds to the country’s leading sportfishing advocacy group, the Recreational Fishing Alliance. They work in Washington to protect your right to fish, ensure fisheries are managed in a sustainable manner, and to protect the livelihoods of people who make the boats, tackle and provide services to saltwater fishermen. The organization deserves our support and participating in this tournament is a great way to get involved!

The 2016 installment of Buc Cup history saw some foul weather which kept entries low, but 21 teams showed up to battle in two of the toughest days of fishing the tournament has ever seen. When all was said and done, the team of anglers on board 70’ Bertram Kathy Jo (pictured below) reigned supreme and won a $95,990 pay day. Total payout for the small field was almost $190,000 in tournament cash and Calcutta money. With more favorable weather and a larger field in 2017 the payout should increase significantly!
