Light Tackle Sailfish Tournament – Stuart Sailfish Club
December 09, 2020 - December 12, 2020
The Stuart Sailfish Club (SSC) has hosted the Annual Light Tackle Sailfish Tournament (LTT) for more than 65 years. The 67th Annual Stuart Sailfish Club Light Tackle Tournament will be held December 9th – 12th, 2020, and HMY is proud to be a sponsor of this tournament.
With everything that has been going on with the Covid-19 Pandemic and the CDC guidelines constantly changing, the Stuart Sailflish Club has been hard at work finalizing the 67th Annual Stuart Sailfish Light Tackle Tournament to accommodate all participants.
The tournament will take place at Pirates Cove Resort & Marina. The tournament this year, will be different, just like 2020 has been. The tournament will NOT have observers this year. New for 2020 is a Ladies Day on Saturday, and both the Light Tackle Tournament (Dec 10th-11th) & the Ladies Day (Dec 12th) will have a MEAT FISH Division (mahi, tuna, wahoo & kingfish: heaviest in each category!)
Wednesday, December 9th will be the Kickoff Party & Final Registration for the Tournament at Pirates Cove Resort & Marina from 4pm to 6pm followed by the Captain’s meeting. Hors d’oeuvres will be served with (2) drink tickets per person.
Thursday/Friday, December 10th & 11th will be fishing days for Light Tackle.
Saturday, December 12th will be LADIES fishing day. For the first time ever, the Light Tackle is setting aside one full fishing day for the ladies! The Ladies Tournament Day will be for Sailfish Release but will also include heaviest meat fish categories for Tuna, Wahoo, King and Mahi.
The Stuart Sailfish Club is proud to partner, once again, with the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast as a beneficiary of the tournament. The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast (HSTC) is a no- kill animal welfare organization. Since 1955, it has been the leading advocate for animal protection and well- being in the Martin County area. A 501(c)3 private, nonprofit organization, the HSTC is independent and locally operated and relies on donations to support its programs and services to fulfill its mission: To provide compassionate care and nurture the bond between people and pets.
The Stuart Sailfish Club is also working with one of our local boat captains, whose daughter is fighting T-Cell Lymphoma. “Ladies Day” will be dedicated to helping raise funds for this amazing little girl, Victory Leidner and her family.
