Playboy Playmate Shawn Dillon, Miss February 2013 To Join With Tournament Anglers at the Wahoo Smackdown II in Bimini
She dives. She fishes. She’s the February 2013 Centerfold in Playboy Magazine. And she’s coming to the historic Bimini Big Game Club on Saturday, February 23.
Shawn Dillon will be the official hostess of the Big Game Club’s upcoming Wahoo Smackdown II tournament, helping with the final weigh-ins, presenting trophies and, well, posing for pictures and signing autographs for participating teams.
“I’m a mermaid who loves being by the water more than anything,” says the searingly hot Sarasota, Florida native. “It’s where I feel happiest and most at peace. It’s like heaven to me.”
Shawn, who has won major bikini competitions from Vegas to the Bahamas grew up fishing with three brothers, either on her uncle’s boat in Bimini or in the lake in their backyard. Also a surfer, a certified scuba diver and an avid wakeboarder, Shawn sports a subtly placed tattoo of a shark and a scuba diver.
Her February pictorial was shot on a boat in the Florida Keys.
The entry fee for the Wahoo Smackdown II (which includes four anglers per boat) is an affordable $1,250. First place prize is $5,000, followed by $1,500 for second and $1,000 for third. The tournament, a follow-up to a highly successful Wahoo Smackdown tournament in November, is scheduled for February 21-13.

Bimini¹s location along the legendary Gulf Stream (a “river” of warm water) location is at the apex of a superhighway for migrating fish and acts as a kind of sushi conveyor belt carrying abundant food to the local fish.
Deepwater game fish include marlin, tuna, sailfish, wahoo and swordfish, while big grouper, barracuda and schools of snapper can be found on the reefs. Bimini’s flats are home the fishermen’s favorite prey, bonefish and permit. With more than 50-record-setting catches in the waters around the island, Bimini has earned its title of Sport Fishing Capital of the World.
