The ultimate sport fishing experience of a lifetime is coming to the historic Bimini Big Game Club Resort and Marina in April 2014 — a 22-boat billfish team tournament that not only will give anglers a shot at a $20,000 top cash prize but also a chance to fish with a Pro Football Hall of Fame Player or NFL legend.

The Hall of Fame Players Classic Foundation, a registered non-profit, today officially opened registration for the two-day tournament scheduled for April 24-27, limited to just 22 boats. This boat/team tournament is open for up to four registered anglers per boat. Each registered boat will include a NFL Hall of Fame Great or NFL Legend. (Participating players will be announced after the first of the New Year).

To register online go to www.HOFBimini.com and a brief tournament video overview can be viewed on the homepage. Several sponsorship levels are available including the title sponsorship.

The catch-and-release-only tournament, which will adhere to IGFA Tournament rules, will target all billfish species, including Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, Spearfish and Swordfish. Awards will be presented in the overall angler and team categories and additional awards will be given to the high point boat each day.
