May 1st 2017 Press Release- Trinidad and Tobago Game Fishing Association.


Trinidad Team takes 3rd place at Offshore World Championships.


For the fifth year in a row, Trinidad and Tobago have proven themselves to be among the most skilled Sport fishermen in the world.  One the heels of our 2016 victory, we have once again graced the podium of the Offshore World Championships.  The tournament held in Quepos, Costa Rica every year is considered to be the ‘Olympics of Sport Fishing’.  As top teams from all over the world gather to compete for this prestigious honor.  After 4 days of fishing, competing against 47 other teams and over 250 anglers, all of the Trinidad and Tobago’s teams have finished their way into the top ten, with representatives from last year’s championship team finished in third place.


This is an achievement that the Trinidad and Tobago Game Fishing Association is extremely proud of and we congratulate all of our teams that represented the red, white and Black in Costa Risa this year.  Mention must also be made of our top angler this year: Conrad Skinner, for finishing third overall out of 256 anglers in the individual Category.
