The Jardines del Rey Big Game Trolling Tournament will take place in Cayo Guillermo, Cuba, from Oct. 25 to 30, 2023. The fishing area will be up to 5 miles to the North-Northeast between Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo, which is a rich fishing area in the Old Channel of the Bahamas, where a wide range of species abound, among them Peralgic and billfishes, such as the Fantail, Casteros, White Marlin, Wahoo, and Dorados.
