Welcome to the Texas Billfish Championship 2013
June 26-29, 2013
We would first like to sincerely thank everyone who fished the TBC in 2012. It was a huge success and we thank you. We hope you enjoyed the tournament. It was and will always be our top priority to make sure the teams fishing the TBC have a great time.
In 2012, the TBC paid out over $211,000 in cash prizes. It is our goal to see that number explode in 2013. 2012 saw some of the top boats in Texas come out, and there were some impressive catches. We can't wait to see what 2013 will bring.
We are staying true to our roots!!! The TBC is a tournament by fishermen FOR fishermen. With 100% calcutta and side pot pay backs, the winners WIN. The rules of the tournament are designed to maximize fishing time and add simplicity to the tournament. With an entry fee of only $750 (that's 80% less than other Texas tournaments), our goal is to host a minimal entry fee tournament with MAXIMUM payback to the winners. So instead of steaks and wine at the calcutta we will have crawfish and beer (and a bit more), and the winners will take home the money.
While the TBC strives to be Texas' premier Marlin tournament, we haven't forgotten about yellowfin tuna, dorado and wahoo. There will be side pots to cover these species. There are more big marlin caught in June than any other month on the gulf coast, so the time for this tournament is right.
This will again be the first 2013 big game tournament in Texas and should be a fantastic way to kick off the tournament season.
So please join us in what is sure to be a fun four days of fishing and festivities.
