Big Fish & Blue Water: The 2018 Billfish Tournament

GulfCoastWeekend.com

Billfish tournament season is in full swing. Come with us onboard the Iona Louise, a 68’ Hatteras owned by Joe Hudson, as the crew tries to defend their title at the 2018 Pensacola International Billfish Tournament.

It was tough fishing conditions for all the teams this year. Some boats experienced rough weather, while others searched in vain for blue water where pelagic species thrive. As you’ll see in this clip, Captain Erik Chandler was able to put the team in some of that blue water to bring home a couple of yellowfin tuna and earn the team a nice payday.
