Fishing notice

Competitive angling makes its return to the Cayman sports scene. 

The Cayman Islands Angling Club, the local governing body for the sport, hosts its first fishing tournament of 2014, the Barcadere Classic, March 1-2 at the Barcadere Marina in George Town. 

Registration is Feb. 27 at the George Town Yacht Club from 6:30 p.m. Entry fee is $300 for a team of up to four anglers. The awards ceremony is March 4 at the Yacht Club from 7 p.m. 

As usual, this year’s prizes center on Cayman’s three main types of game fish: yellowfin tuna, dolphin and wahoo. The heaviest tuna and dolphin each claim $2,000, the second heaviest fish in each class earns $1,000 and the third heaviest nabs $500 in both segments. The biggest wahoo lands $5,000, the second heaviest gets $3,000 and the third biggest takes home $1,000.
