Welcome to the 7th Annual VFW Fishing Tournament in Key West. This tournament, in its seventh year, is known up and down the Florida Keys as being a family event with cash prizes for the heaviest fish from five different species, individual angler cash prizes, and many great door prizes. The tournament is capped off by an awards barbeque at our newly refurbished VFW Post # 3911.
As in past years, all registered boats get four tournament t – shirts, however this year, anglers will have the option of getting “ladies cut’ t-shirts for their lady anglers. Local artist, Jay Cheville has painted a portrait that will be featured on the shirts as well as the tournament flyer. The actual painting will be raffled off at the barbeque. We have added one angler prize category: Veteran Angler, which is for any angler that has served in the military, and is no longer on active duty, or in the active reserve. Due to popular demand, we have added a second ” Calcutta “(Dolphin only). The “Calcuttas” which are completely optional, if entered, will allow one vessel to increase the tournament first prize of $3000.00 to well over $10,000.00 if both “Calcuttas “are entered.
Whether you are a returning angler, or new to the tournament scene, this is one event that you do not want to miss.
All proceeds benefit needy and disabled veterans. Help us help those that have given so much.
