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.

      Should you need further information and/ or have questions, please feel free to contact me.

    I apologize for the time this has taken to make our final decision.After looking at the past years of our beloved Casting for Cats Womens fishing tournament our number of lady anglers has dropped each year, in order to keep up with our ever changing time Casting for Cats will be changing it’s format. Now we will include women anglers fishing with there Captain or there husband to become a team event We will still have a Grand Champion female angler but we will also have other division . We are hoping this change will bring in more anglers male and female to cover the cost we all incurred by having tournaments. With this new change we now will be challenged with a new set of rules to make it fun and fair for all. We feel we need to ”Paws” to make these changes . We have just booked the Islander Resort for Oct.17 and 18 2024 . Thank you for so many years of your support we greatly hope this change will keep this tournament here for many years to come.
