See you this Week!
Welcome to the 2015 Texas Legends Billfish Tournament
All participants are required to abide by all State and Federal Laws… The tournament has been informed by the United States Coast Guard – Brownsville that is against Federal Law to leave a Texas port, fish in Mexican waters and return to a Texas port. Therefore, fishing Mexican waters, which extends south from 26 degrees N Latitude is not permitted in this tournament.
Last year’s event was a great success and we enjoyed another great year of fishing!
A total of 50 boats competed for $715,000 in prize money!
The Port Aransas location is ideal for this bluewater event with boats fishing the entire Texas coast. Last year’s champion was Bert Steindorf’s BANDIT, taking top honors and was awarded the perpetual Bob Byrd Memorial Trophy. BANDIT’s Captain Kevin Scott was awarded the Capt. Bill Hart Memorial Captain’s Trophy and mate KT Scott was awarded the Stewart Campbell Memorial Mate’s Trophy. John Ramming on the REBECCA caught a 104.5 lb. Yellowfin Tuna, winning the Alfred Glassell Memorial Trophy, awarded to the boat weighing the largest fish in the tournament.
