The Sailfish Challenge: February 20-24, 2019



The Sailfish Challenge is one of the most popular Sailfish tournaments in the country. 58 boats and more than 500 anglers competed in the 2018 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 2019 Challenge will have a chance to compete in the 2nd Annual Coin Challenge where teams will be randomly assigned in color groups and battle to see which group releases the most sailfish in the tournament.  Each winning team receives a custom designed challenge coin!  But that's not all.  A grand prize drawing for a 3 day/2 night stay is up for grabs to the Coin Challenge winners courtesy of Landshark Lager, official beer of the Quest for the Crest!

New for this year, the kickoff party is returning to IGFA headquarters in Dania Beach on Wednesday, February 20th.  Blue Moon Fish Company, a 5 star seafood restaurant on the water in Ft. Lauderdale, is the host venue for the Sailfish Challenge kickoff awards ceremony.  Prepare yourself for a 5-star awards dining experience at the #1 seafood restaurant in South Florida courtesy!

Sandman snagged 1st place and over a $189,000 payout in 2018.  Who will it be in 2019? Are you ready for The Challenge?
