With less than 6 weeks until the kick-off of the 2014 Bahamas Billfish Championship the excitement is building! Leg 1 of the 2014 series takes place in Guana Cay at Orchid Bay Resort & Marina and is hosted by Hatteras and MarineMax. A new chef and menus await BBC participants as well as the excellent hospitality we have become accustomed to from the staff at Orchid Bay.

Please make sure you take a minute to review the rules for this year's series. We've listened to your input and there have been a few changes made! Now is also the time to check all of your digital cameras, video cameras and GoPro cameras. Make sure you are familiar with how they operate and what additional equipment you may need.

Bahamas Sport Fishing Network

Get ready to share your photos with the world!

by Brooks Russell

 

The Bahamas Sport Fishing Network (BSFN) is the leading online media company in the Bahamas showcasing Sport Fishing in the Bahamas for the past 3 years through our website, Facebook and Instagram pages and Twitter feed. 

Recently we partnered with one of the world's leading media companies, USA Today, to produce a series of slide shows on their website showcasing Sports Fishing in the Bahamas. The first slide show launched in February and was so successful (with over 500,000 views in 4 days!) that now a series of slide shows will be produced monthly, providing global exposure to this industry in the Bahamas.

The USA Today website generates 100 million viewers a month--29 million viewers a month on the Travel section. The second slide show was just released and can be viewed on the home page of the Travel section of the USA Today website.

The first two slide shows have reached over 700,000 views. After the launch of next month's slideshow we will exceed 1 million views!

In searching for industry partners in the Bahamas who are passionate, respected and pioneers in the industry, the BBC was the first company we wanted to contact and partner with. BSFN is very excited about the partnership and working with Jennifer and the BBC in showcasing and promoting the amazing Sport Fishing in the Bahamas!

 

The BSFN wants your photos to share with USA TODAY readers! Make sure to see Jennifer if you have some great photos to share. You will receive photo credits.

 


Bahamas Billfish Championship

40 Years in Pictures

Own a piece of fishing history! The BBC 40th Anniversary DVD is now available. The DVD features over 2,000 pictures from the last 40 years of the Bahamas Billfish Championship! The anglers, the crews, the fun, the fish and, best of all, the memories ... They’re all here on one DVD.

Take a walk down memory lane - Get a glimpse of some of our seasoned anglers and crew when they were much younger. Not only have the hair styles changed over the years but so have the dress codes for angler meetings. Watch as the ‘battle-wagons’ evolve and the host resorts develop and expand.

The DVD has five ‘chapters’ so you can select the time frame you wish to view. Or, if you prefer, savior the memories from 1973 thru 2013 as a one-hour, forty-five minute show.

The price is only $30. Proceeds go to the BBC Scholarship Fund.
