Congratulations to Captain Alan Card as 2021 IGFA Tommy Gifford Award Recipient

We’d like to congratulate one of our Gamefisherman Legends, Captain Alan Card of 40 Gamefisherman CHALLENGER in Bermuda as a 2021 IGFA Tommy Gifford Award recipient!

Captain Alan Card has over 40 years of experience as an offshore charter captain in Bermuda. Card caught the first grander blue marlin in Bermuda and has caught seven blue marlin weighing over 1,100 pounds. He is also credited for catching a bluefin tuna that weighed in at 782 pounds and once held both the IGFA All-Tackle and men’s 50-pound Line Class record with a 42-pound blackfin tuna. For the last 20 years, he has been running the 40-foot Gamefisherman, Challenger, with his son, Ian, alongside him. Card has won several prestigious billfish tournaments including the 1993 World Cup and 2001 Big Game Classic.

Capt. Alan Card still runs his notable sportfishing charter out of Bermuda with his son, Ian Card. For more information on booking a trip on CHALLENGER, visit
