The Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament attracts teams from all around the world, including teams from Japan, Australia, New Zealand and even Singapore, along with teams from the US. The parade kicks off the Hawaiian International Billfish Tournament, and fishing begins on Monday, July 25. The five day tournament concludes on Friday, July 29.
