    Alright guys, it's that time of year again and we are having another "Fun" fishing tournament to raise money for the Autism Society of Miami Dade.This will again be an inshore/offshore tournament. Last year, with your help and donations, we were able to raise $13,800 dollars and donate it to the Society. I started the fishing program for children with Autism and it was a huge success. We were able to take over 60 families out on the charter boat "Reward" out of Miami Beach and we gave away over 100 fishing rods and tackle boxes to the kids and their siblings. The donations also funded a family bowling day held at Bird Bowl where we also bought pizza and drinks for the 50 families that attended. This years tournament will be held on June 4, 2011 at Homestead Bayfront Park and Marina, the same location as last year. Enty fee will be $100 for each boat with up to 4 anglers. More details to follow...

    Well folks, we are two weeks away from this awesome event. I just wanted to send out a quick reminder for the tournament and give a brief update as to where we are. We are still selling raffle tickets for the boat and trailer and accepting entry forms. Please try to sign up as early as possible since we have to estimate the food we are going to need. We will be having our Captains Meeting on Friday June 3 at Lil Hoolies sports bar again at 7pm. You can leave from any marina and lines in is at 7am, on the honor system. We have extended the fishing time by 1 hour since we have extended sunlight this year. You must be back at the weigh in station by 4pm. We will have Smoky Dans BBQ, Guy Harvey Magazine, Millers Ale House, Lit Cigars, a bounce house and crafts table for the kids, D.J. Juan Perez and other goodies the day of the tournament. We will also be selling tickets for the general raffle like last year. We will be raffling off gift certificates, fishing rods, paintings and other goodies. We are going to have a silent auction for several items and for the original painting of this years logo by Chris Howard of Finsart.com. Please come out and join us for a fun filled day with family and friends all benefitting the Autism Society of Miami Dade. Thank you for your support.
