Although it was for a long time playfully referred to as the “Who Cares Wahoo Tournament,” the Turks and Caicos annual Winter Wahoo Rodeo is a day-long marathon of fishing. The tournament is held in mid-January in the Turtle Cove Marina and includes cash prizes, free airline gifts, and more fun than you can shake a ten foot pole at. Whoever can wriggle up on deck the heaviest fish will be crowned the winner.
Grab your tackle box and lucky fishing lure, this once-a-year tournament in Providenciales brings practiced fishermen from around the world, all vying for the big cash prize! Often described as the “sea’s torpedoes,” the wahoo is a tropical fish that’s familiar to sports fishermen for the high quality of its flesh and tremendous agility, making this one tough catch. Turks and Caicos is the pitch-perfect backdrop for this challenging event and those Caribbean winds are sure to stir the best catches.
