With Sailfish biting in Islamorada this year’s event should turn out to be spectacular. Please stop by Whale Harbor if you are in the Keys and get the latest information. This event is the primary fundraiser for the Islamorada Charter Boat Association.
The Islamorada Sailfish Tournament is the first leg of the Florida Keys Gold Cup Sailfish Championship. Make sure to check in during the Cheeca Lodge Presidential January 16th-18th to see who’s in the lead. The final leg of the Gold Cup Series is on January 23rd at the Islamorada Fishing Clubs Sailfish Tournament. Here the top team will be awarded the Gold Cup trophy and the winning Angler will receive the coveted Championship Ring.
157 Sailfish were released out of the 199 called in hook ups last year. Let’s hope this year will produce more releases. The Islamorada Sailfish Tournament is the primary fund raiser for the Islamorada Charter Boat Association. With the help of our major sponsors Caribee Boat Sales, Yamaha Outboards, Mercedes Benz of Cutler Bay, Tackle Center of Islamorada, Mangrove Mikes Café. The donation of non-offset circle hooks from VMC, and the splendid parties put on by Whale Harbor Restaurants and Marina, the Islamorada Sailfish Tournament will continue the fight to preserve and protect the fabulous fishing in the Florida Keys.
