The Sailfish Challenge has quickly become one of the most popular Sailfish tournaments in the country. 70 boats and more than 500 anglers competed in the 2016 event.
One of the most distinguishing features of the Sailfish Challenge is its three inlet format. Team's can check in to Government Cut in Miami, Hillsboro Inlet in Pompano Beach or Lake Worth Inlet in West Palm Beach following each day of fishing. This feature is a great compliment to the event's date in February. The bite can turn on anywhere up and down the South Florida coastline this time of the year.
Teams fishing the 2017 Challenge will enjoy the kickoff party location at Bokamper's Sports Bar & Grill in Ft. Lauderdale. With 400 feet of dock space on the water, there's no reason to drive to this party! Teams will also be treated to a fabulous dining experience at the closing awards ceremony held at Blue Moon Fish Company on the water in Ft. Lauderdale. Jichi snagged 1st place and over a $163,000 payout in 2016. Who will it be in 2017? The action happens on February 22-26. Are you ready for The Challenge?
