September 13, 2019 - The seventh edition of the Big Game Fishing Competition in Herceg Novi is scheduled for September 18-21. At the end of the high tourist season, 12 miles from the Boka Bay entrance, 20 teams with more than 100 participants will compete in one of the most popular sport fishing disciplines.
Big Game Fishing, which gathers lovers of fishing for big fish, extends the season in Herceg Novi. The competition has an international character and many visitors are coming to Herceg Novi, so all apartments are sold out in the area of the city port of Škver, said the president of Big Game Fishing Club Herceg Novi, Radojica Raco Gardašević.
"This year's edition will be the biggest tournament so far, with over 20 teams already registered. Participants come from Germany, Russia, France, Poland, Switzerland, and Serbia. Twelve teams from Montenegro were reported. Teams typically have 2 to 5 members, among them are experienced fishers and celebrities. Like every year, we expect famous faces from the world of business and public life to be among the participants," Gardasevic told Radio Jadran.
The ships will sail every morning from Škver City Harbor at 8 am, returning, all hoping for a good catch, around 6 pm.
The youngest fishermen have not been forgotten this year either, so the "Little Game Fishing" - a competition for the ages of seven to fourteen - was announced for September 21, from 10 am to 1 pm. A boat will take the children to Rose, where the competition will be held. For this purpose, hooks, hers, instructors, and sandwiches and refreshments will be provided. Parents are invited to join.
During the Big Game Fishing event, at the Jadran Restaurant, participants and guests have the opportunity to enjoy a music program each night, performed by musicians from the cities of Boka. On the first night, the Tivat ensemble Toć performs. The following evening, the acoustic duo of Đurđa and Kristijan from Kotor will take care of the good mood. The Low Voltage duo performs at the awards ceremony and the closing of the 7th Big Game Fishing.
The Herceg Novi City Music and Majorettes will celebrate the award ceremony at the Škver. All visitors will have the opportunity to observe the weighing of the catch and the announcement of the winners. That night dinner will traditionally be served not only for the participants of the tournament but also for all those who find themselves in Škver.
The tuna, swordfish, lampoon and albacore fishing competition is organized by the Big game fishing club Herceg Novi, the Montenegrin Sport Fishing Association and the Tourist Organization of Herceg Novi.
