Jumeirah Beach Hotel has announced that it will once again be spearheading the BIG6 Fishing Tournament which is set to test fishing enthusiasts on 20th March.

The teams of keen fishermen will leave the Jumeirah Beach Hotel Marina to take to the waters of the Arabian Gulf in the hope of catching not only a big fish like a King fish or Hammour, but also to land themselves a big prize.

This year the tournament is again being hosted by Jumeirah Beach Hotel, in association with ART Marine and Riviera, and the competition will allow fishermen and woman of all abilities the chance to put their skills to the test and compete for spectacular prizes in six different categories, with the biggest judged catch receiving the grand prize of a full day yacht charter.

The Tournament is due to commence early in the morning at 7am when the eager fishermen will sail out from Jumeirah Beach Hotel’s Marina on a mission to test their skills and luck. After enjoying a great day at sea with family and friends, the teams will have a sumptuous barbeque dinner followed by the prize-giving ceremony which awaits the participants back at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel's North Beach.

Teams of up to 5 members are eligible to take part in the competition and with the fantastic weather, the beautiful Gulf with its stunning Dubai coastline, including the impressive island chains of The Palm, The World, and The Palm Deira, and fun atmosphere, the event has always proved popular with all the participants involved (fish excepted).
