FishTrack.com recently announced a new partnership with the Club Nautico de San Juan International Billfish Tournament, one of the oldest, most prestigious marlin tournaments in the world, to provide tournament participants with the most accurate marine weather and sea surface temperature charts available.
The International Billfish Tournament has long been known as one of the most elite offshore events in the Caribbean. For more than 60 years the event has catered to anglers from around the world, showcasing Puerto Rico’s world-class marlin fishery and hosting legendary activities each night to coincide with the great fishing.
“The boats and teams fishing the International Billfish Tournament make up the top crews in the Caribbean,” said Charlie Levine, editor of Fishtrack.com. “Through this partnership, we will be able to provide accurate wind and swell forecasts as well as sea surface temperature charts right on the event’s website, sanjuaninternational.com. We’re excited to be a part of this world-class event.”
Fishtrack’s meteorologists will also prepare a detailed weather forecast leading up to the tournament. This forecast will be published on Fishtrack.com and Buoyweather.com and will be made available to the fleet of boats in the tournament. As part of the partnership, Fishtrack.com will also be publishing daily catch reports during the tournament, social media posts and a full recap of the event.
