2014 BBC Champions
Team Wave Paver!
Wave Paver Rolls Over the Competition In the Last Five Minutes to Win the 2014 Bahamas Billfish Championship Series
With just five minutes remaining in the 2014 Bahamas Billfish Championship, Wave Paver hooked up to a blue marlin. A minute before that, Jr. Davis and his team were in second place for the overall championship title. This blue marlin release would earn Wave Paver 600 points and a second place finish for the Marsh Harbour Championship and 500 bonus points to go along with that. Those points combined pushed Wave Paver above then leader Marlin Darlin for the Championship win!
Jr. Davis has fished the Bahamas Billfish Championship every year since 2006. In 2011 the 61’ Garlington finished second overall. This year, Wave Paver fished all four tournaments placing third in the Treasure Cay Championship and second in the Marsh Harbour Championship. Points were earned by the Kissimmee, Florida team for releasing six blue marlin, three white marlin and two sailfish. Including bonus and participation points the team finished with a total of 5700 points.
Full Time Was On The Fish In Marsh Harbour!
Team Full Time found the fish in Marsh Harbour! The Miami, Florida based team led by owner Luis Perez, started off the fourth and final leg of the 2014 BBC series releasing two blue marlin on day one. Their success continued on day two when the team on the 63’ Bertram were able to release two additional blue marlin as well as a white marlin. These releases were enough to push the team far ahead of the fleet and earn them the win for the Marsh Harbour Championship.
