MARATHON SAILFISH TOURNAMENT UPDATES

what’s happening

As both an annual fishing tournament and a non-profit organization we have lots to talk about! See what’s happening in our neck of the woods, and how you can help us make a difference.

Main Attraction Fishing Charters recently went fishing with some terrific families thanks to the Mission Fishin' organization. This is a great example of some of the events your support helps make happen.

Thanks for all of your support, it was recently my honor to present Mission Fishin’ with a check for $10,000.00 For a first-year event like this, to cover expenses, pay out winners, and raise $10,000 for a great cause is an incredible result. I want to thank all tournament participants, sponsors, donors, and contributors that made this event possible. I can’t wait to see you all in 2023! 📸 credit: @keywestphotog Sincerely, Katie Lewis #floridakeysfishing #floridakeys

What a finish with team Big Game catching the last Sailfish of the day allowing Robert "Reggie" Hiro to clinch top Male Angler at the very last minute!

With just 3 minutes to lines out Captain Ariel Medero and the Big Game team reported a double hook-up! One sail was lost but they are still fighting the remaining one. According to the rules they are allowed to finish fighting their fish and a successful release will count! What an exciting finish! Stay tuned for more.

Less than an hour to go. Good luck everyone, let's finish strong! 💪 #floridakeys #floridakeysfishing
