Ernest Hemingway’s grandson John Hemingway will be trolling for wahoo off the coast of Bimini, the island Hemingway made famous in his novel Islands in the Stream.

The Bahamas Weekly reports that John Hemingway, son of Gregory Hemingway, will be participating in the Wahoo Smackdown II hosted by the Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina, scheduled for February 21-23.

“This is a real coup for us,” tournament director Paul Cameron told the Bahamas Weekly. “Imagine being able to brag that you actually fished with a Hemingway, and in Bimini, of all places.”

John Hemingway, who wrote a well-received memoir of his family, Strange Tribe, is on assignment at the tournament for Sport Fishing Magazine.

He’s been a frequent visitor to Bimini, the island where his uncle Leicester lived and ran a newspaper before he committed suicide, like his brother Ernest. Ernest frequented Bimini, too, and helped establish the island as a sport fishing destination.
