Welcome to the Texas Legends Billfish Tournament
See you in August!
August 8 – 12th, 2018
SUZY Q wins the 2017 Texas Legends Billfish Tournament!
The Texas Legends continues it’s tradition of a High Stakes/Video release billfish tournament!
The 2017 tournament was another success with more than $425,000 in prize money. Over 68 billfish were caught by 28 boats, despite a threat from Tropical Storm Franklin earlier in the week.
ONCE AGAIN, ALL BILLFISH WERE RELEASED!
Despite some very serious challenges from the FREEBIRD and LADY MARY ANN, Will Cocke’s SUZY Q took the lead early and kept it for the entire tournament. The first day both SUZY Q and FREEBIRD scored Grand Slams! The LADY MARY ANN with Capt. Aaron Belcher scored another Grand Slam the second day and came within 100 points (1 Sailfish!) of catching the SUZY Q. At final count, the top three boats were separated by only 200 points! The largest fish weighed of the tournament was a 146.4 lb Swordfish caught on Robert Brown’s MONO CHONGO. There were many other fish caught and released by the fleet. For full details on catch results, see the Leaderboard.
We would like to thank all of our participants and our sponsors who have made the Texas Legends Billfish Tournament a success. We hope you will join us next year as we honor old friends, catch some great fish and celebrate our big game fishing heritage…
