Tournament director named for celebrity billfish tourney

Capt. Chase Camacho, who learned to fish at the legendary Big Tuna Grounds off Montauk, Long Island, and honed his skills off the Florida coast, was named tournament director for a one-of-a-kind billfish tournament combining hard driving bluewater action with a chance to fish with the best of the best from the NFL.

Camacho, though his Chase N Dreams Yacht Charters, has been offering blue water charters from Bimini since last April. Camacho will be recruiting competitive anglers for the two-day billfish tournament which will give them a shot at more than $250,000 in prizes, a tremendous gift bag per angler, and a chance to fish with a Pro Football Hall of Fame player or NFL legend.

“This is about as good as it gets,” said Camacho, who was voted one of the top five charter boat captains in South Florida. “Some great billfish action, the historic Bimini Big Game Club and camaraderie with guys who are gridiron legends.”
