Operation Sailfish is a world class fishing tournament hosted out of Sailfish Marina in West Palm Beach, FL on January 16-20, 2019. The patriotic tones surrounding Operation Sailfish are created in honor of the men and women of our United States military.

To thank them for their service, the tournament hosts a ‘Take a Hero Fishing Day’ on January 17th where these heroes have the opportunity to join the teams for a fun day of fishing prior to the start of the tournament competition. Trophies are awarded for the top hero angler, heaviest fish, top team and most patriotic team!

Men and women of active duty, veterans and wounded warriors are eligible to participate and are invited to submit an application below.

Completing this form does not confirm or guarantee your participation in Take a Hero Fishing Day. The number of heroes selected is based on the number of volunteer boats available. New participants will receive first assignments on boats. All selections otherwise will be on a first come first serve basis. Bluewater Movements does not take requests for specific team pairings. Selected military participants will be notified by Bluewater Movements and paired with a fishing team. If selected to participate, you must be able to provide your own transportation to and from the marina. Transportation and/or lodging will not be provided by the tournament organizers.

    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.
