Ladies Annual Fish-Off

June 1, 2017 - June 4, 2017

Ladies Fish-Off Logo

In 1986, a group of ten enthusiastic lady anglers organized the Ladies Annual Fish-Off to raise money for a local children’s charity. The first ladies-only saltwater tournament was held at the Sands, and featured 72 boats and 125 anglers. The tournament raised $5,000 in its inaugural year. In its second year, the tournament had 127 boats and 237 anglers. The heaviest fish was a Blue Marlin caught by Kim Burgess, and the tournament netted $10,000. Most recently, 159 anglers fished on 49 boats in the 31st Annual Ladies Fish-Off, and the tournament netted $32,000.

The longevity of the Ladies Annual Fish-Off is a true testament to the fishing community in Southeast Florida. Our lady anglers are family-focused women with a passion for fishing and their community. This tournament is planned and executed 100% by volunteers, and it is amazing what can happen when a community comes together. Since its inception, over $532,000 has been donated to our beneficiaries.

As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, all the tournament proceeds go directly to The Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida and The Billfish Foundation. The Ladies Fish-Off also makes a $1,500 contribution to the NSU Oceanographic Center Fisheries Lab.
