Race To Somewhere Contest Winner’s Circle

Each year BD runs our most popular contest that anyone can enter online.  We draw one lucky winner and they join us on an all-expense paid bucket list fishing trip.  The first three years the winners pitted their body and soul against the giant bluefin tuna of Prince Edward Island with Tony’s Tuna Fishing. Amazing!

Then we shifted gears and the winner got a trip to fish both inshore and offshore Louisiana with the awesome crew from Journey South Outfitters.  As a bonus, the winner was the star of that episode of our new fishing show, Local Knowledge.

The following year and incredible trip to Casa Vieja Lodge in the Race To Guatemala. We caught a pile of sailfish with the amazing crews of Casa Vieja.

2017 found us nestled in the jungle on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica at Los Suenos Resort and Marina, an incredible destination where we joined the expert crews with Maverick Sportfishing for some amazing days trolling for billfish and more in the fertile Pacific waters.
