Vigilante justice. Man versus the ocean. Its a tale as old as Moby Dick. The saga continues this weekend, when South Florida fishermen take to the seas during the Miami Billfish Tournament. Behold in wonder as men in baseball caps catch predatory fish larger than their grandmothers and pose triumphantly next to their monstrously scaled bodies!
Besides the obvious honor that comes with catching the biggest fish, winning anglers will receive more than $200,000 in prizes. From 3 to 7 p.m., a dockside party and baywalk festival will encourage visitors to watch the fall of the fish. Celebrate our superiority over marine life with live calypso music and Bacardi cocktails. Try not to drink too much, though, for we must remain vigilant to maintain our edge over these gilled predators. Ahoy! Get revenge from April 3 through 6 dockside at the Miami Beach Marina.
