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.

Thanks for all of your support, it was recently my honor to present Mission Fishinโ€™ 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 canโ€™t wait to see you all in 2023! ๐Ÿ“ธ credit: @keywestphotog 
Sincerely,

The Marathon Premier Sailfish Tournament is officially complete! Congratulations to team Ofishal in 1st place. Captain Cody Darby, Mate/Angler Clint "Digger" Rodamer and anglers James Simcic, Phillip Quincy Byron JR., KC Spaulding, Tyler Kelley, and Austin Baxter. Congratulations to team Big Game who placed 2nd Overall and team Blue Magic I who placed 3rd overall. Thanks to everyone involved for making this a success and helping us raise money for a very important organization Mission Fishin'. See you all at the awards banquet at Aquarium Encounters tonight!
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! ๐Ÿ’ช
