2016 Old Salt Loop tournament Results

Florida West Coast Triple Crown Billfish Series.

This series, based on the tournament model developed over 40 years ago for the Old Salt LOOP Tournament, is for EXTREME Billfish. Anglers in each tourney will experience up to 60 hours of non-stop billfishing (no dock time in the individual tournaments).  The series has been rightly dubbed “The Ironman of billfishing” by former Loop Tournament winner, Captain of Team Hauling Grass, Brian Turner. 

The Yellowfin Billfish Classic, Crosthwait Memorial Tournament and the Old Salts LOOP Tournament combine to deliver an ultra competitive three event Billfish Series. One team, the one with the most combined Billfish release points, will earn the 2016 Triple Crown Series title.Teams will be competing for, in addition to the prize packages in the individual tournaments, a $50,000 purse – WINNER TAKES ALL – to be awarded at the Old Salt LOOP Tournament on Saturday August 27, 2016.
