Celebrating the 29th Annual Ladies Fish Off
The Ladies Annual Fish-Off was established 28 years ago and has flourished ever since. This year’s tournament will be held May 29th – June 1st of 2014. Ladies Annual Fish-Off is one of the largest fishing tournaments in South Florida both by number of boats and anglers and continues to grow in number every year.
The ladies who fish the tournament have put some trophy fish on the dock in recent tournaments including a 54 pound Kingfish, 57.7 pound Dolphin and a 77.2 pound Wahoo. The top ten boats and top three lady anglers receive cash and prizes along with the top three largest fish in the five non-billfish categories: blackfin tuna, cobia, dolphin, kingfish and wahoo. Top family, top junior, top captain and top pee-wee prizes will also be awarded. Last year the Ladies Annual Fish-Off donated $20,000 to our charities. Our goal for 2014 is to be able to raise $50,000 for our beneficiaries. As the name implies, only lady anglers may enter, but men can join the fun as captain and crew.
The Ladies Annual Fish-Off is not only a chance to fish with your fellow women it is also an opportunity to raise money for some exceptional organizations. Over the past twenty-eight years the event has raised more than $450,000.00 for our charities. This year money raised during the event will benefit The Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida, and The Billfish Foundation. The Ladies Annual Fish-Off will also be donating $1,500 to the NSU Oceanographic Center Endowed Scholarship Fund.
