Fishing for Futures Tournament
The call for ‘lines in’ will soon be heard by fishing teams throughout the area in support of the 2nd Annual Fishing for Futures tournament. This unique tournament benefits Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County. Club members, many who have never fished before, will be selected to spend the day on the Lady Chris Deep Sea Fishing.
In addition, the Manatee Center in Ft. Pierce is hosting a variety of free children activities including tours, face painting, K-9 demonstration, Bubbles the Clown, Fire truck, give-aways and more.
The one-day tournament features both inshore and offshore fishing with $12,000 in cash prizes. The captain’s party will be held Friday, August 30 at the Fairwinds Golf Course. Boats captains will be given the rules, a list of the day’s activities and a ‘goody’ bucket.
