It is with great pride that I invite you to join us for the 53rd Annual Islamorada Sailfish Tournament. Again this year the tournament will be 20 pound test and up to six lines in the water! The party kicks off on December 1st with fishing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The tournament is the primary fundraiser for the Islamorada Charter Boat Association, a 501-C-3 organization. Last year over $70,000 in cash was paid to the winners! You don't want to miss the action this year. Don't delay Register early and SAVE! This year the Islamorada Sailfish Tournament offers you the opportunity to register before November 15th and save on entry fees.

New anglers and old friends come to Islamorada every year to participate in this prestigious event. The Islamorada Sailfish Tournament is the first leg of the coveted Florida Keys Gold Cup Sailfish Championship that includes the Cheeca Lodge Presidential Sailfish Tournament and the Islamorada Fishing Clubs January Sailfish Tournament. If you intend to fish in the Gold Cup Series you must register for the Gold Cup Tournament by November 15th to be guaranteed a spot in the Cheeca and Fishing Club's Tournaments!

Once again we are hoping for a guest appearance from Captain "Wild" Bill Wichrowski from TV's Deadliest Catch during the Kick off at Whale Harbor, tournament headquarters and home of the Committee Boat. We invite your friends and family to stop by for up to the minute tournament results or follow us on the web.
