The First Annual Fish For Holly Sailfish Tournament was held at the Islander Resort on January 5th and 6th, 2019. In its inaugural year, 56 boats and 207 anglers of men, women and children fished the beautiful waters of Islamorada in the Florida Keys. 101 sailfish were caught and released on a picturesque day with variable winds of 10 – 12 knots and 1-2 foot seas.
The Fish For Holly Sailfish tournament, in its first year, was able to exceed expectations in the amount of money raised. Proceeds from this tournament and in years to come will assist community members in need and provide professional scholarships while also working closely with the Domestic Abuse Shelter of the Upper Keys.
It was an incredible event with close to 400 people in attendance both Friday night and Saturday night at the Islander’s Florida Keys History & Discovery Center. It was the largest tournament turnout Islamorada has ever seen, and in its first year to boot.
