Mission: Capture & release the most sailfish
On January 16, 2019, an infantry of elite Sailfishing teams will converge on Sailfish Resort & Marina to prepare for Operation Sailfish – 2 days of battle against sailfish on the high seas in West Palm Beach, FL. As the first leg in the highly touted, Quest for the Crest Sailfish Series, each and every team will be on a mission to kickstart their series with a strong performance in the season opener.
In addition to an estimated $800,000 purse, teams will vie for the Operation Sailfish dog tags. These tags will be reserved exclusively for the top team in the tournament. Consider it the champion’s id card if you will. Only 1 set will be awarded each year. Team Weez in the Keys wears them now. Who will emboss their name on this prestigious award in 2019?
The military undertones for Operation Sailfish were created in honor of the men & women who have served and continue to serve our country. The pledge they make to protect our country and defend our freedom is a genuine blessing to each and every American. We applaud them for their service and are excited about the ability to honor them with a ‘Take a Hero Fishing Day‘ held each year on the pre-fish day in advance of the tournament. A portion of the proceeds from Operation Sailfish will be devoted to the military based charity, Operation Homefront. This four-star rated nonprofit organization strives to build strong, stable and secure military families so they can thrive in the communities they’ve worked so hard to protect.
