261 Sailfish were released out of the 336 called in hook ups last year. Let's hope this year will produce as many if not more releases. The Islamorada Sailfish Tournament would like to thank our major sponsors Caribee Boat Sales, Yamaha Outboards, World Wide Sportsman, the donation of non-offset circle hooks from VMC, and the splendid parties put on by Whale Harbor Restaurants and Marina. With your help and theirs the Islamorada Charter Boat Association will continue the fight to preserve and protect the fabulous fishing in the Florida Keys.
