Billfish Classic Welcome Party
A fleet of stylish sport-fishing boats filled the horizon in Coast waters behind the Golden Nugget Casino, all ready to cast and drop their reels during this year’s annual Gulf Coast Billfish Classic.
Miller Lite sponsored a welcome party on the dock this evening as a way for the participants to get more acquainted with the Coast before heading out tomorrow for day one of the tournament.
Nothing says “welcome to the Coast” like mounds of crawfish, jambalaya and ice cold beverages. Billfish Classic participant Michael Julian said, “I’m just excited about seeing everyone who is here, everyone’s coming in today so it’s going to be a good time. I’m definitely looking forward to some crawfish. I’ve never had ‘em before.”
Registration for the tournament will open tomorrow at 1 p.m. Events are scheduled all throughout the day such as a captain and anglers banquet and even a Miss Billfish Classic bikini contest.
