Great Fishing on Texas Coast for Texas International Fishing Tournament

Another great year for both offshore and bay fishing! The 71st Annual Texas International Fishing Tournament (TIFT) ended August 1 with a weekend of good weather and good fishing. There were 1222 registrants, 466 boats and two days of fishing. Forty-one billfish were caught; 9 Blue Marlin; 22 White Marlin; 10 Sailfish. Shown in the accompanying photo (by Valerie Bates) is the 670-pound Blue Marlin caught by Francis Knapp Jr aboard the 37' Bessie Belle.
