Leg 2 The Sailfish Challenge

The Sailfish Challenge has become one of the most popular Sailfish tournaments in the country. 58 boats and more than 500 anglers competed in the 2018 event.

One of the most distinguishing features of the Sailfish Challenge is its three inlet format. Teams can check in to Government Cut in Miami, Hillsboro Inlet in Pompano Beach or Lake Worth Inlet in West Palm Beach following each day of fishing. This feature is a great compliment to the event\’s date in February. The bite can turn on anywhere up and down the South Florida coastline this time of the year.

Leg 1 Operation 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?
