The Antigua & Barbuda Sports Fishing Club (ASF) invites all regional and international Sports Fishing Anglers to the 54th Annual Antigua & Barbuda Sports Fishing Tournament to be held at our New Location, the Falmouth Harbour Marina, on June 2nd – 5th 2022. 

Having missed two years due to the pandemic, we are looking forward to welcoming all the anglers from near and far to a whole new location, filled with the amazing atmosphere you have always experienced, or perhaps wish to experience for the first time. The close proximity from the Falmouth Harbour Marina to the prime fishing grounds in the southern part of Antigua means you are not far from the action happening offshore or on the dock.

Assemble your team, check your equipment, register online and fuel up the boat, it’s time to Enjoy the Fishing, Enjoy the Lime.

The Official Tournament Headquarters and Weighing in Station will be in Falmouth Harbour Marina. All Boats (Foreign & Local) must be at the port of Falmouth Harbour Marina NO LATER THAN FRIDAY 3th June AT 6PM. All boats will leave and return to Falmouth Harbour Marina for the tournament.
