ISLAMORADA, Florida Keys — “Ladies, Let's Go Fishing!” provides female anglers a learn-on-the-water weekend of education combined with the fun Screamin’ Reels tournament. The distinctive event is to be held in the Florida Keys' sport fishing capital of Islamorada Friday through Sunday, May 19-21.
For over 20 years the popular getaway has offered a unique vacation where women can network and enjoy the Florida Keys and the island chain’s remarkable fishing. All participants — ladies, men and teens — are invited to practice responsible angling.
The educational weekend kicks off Friday with a presentation on fishing rules and conservation, plus a 6:30-8 p.m. meet and greet at the Tavernier Elks Club, mile marker 92 bayside.
Saturday and Sunday are fishing days with a friendly angling competition, designed with easy rules for novices but challenging for those with experience who seek to enhance their existing skills.
Charter boats depart from Islamorada’s Whale Harbor Marina, mile marker 83.4, and other locations. Anglers also can fish from their own boats.
Prizes are to be awarded for inshore and offshore species and releases including Heaviest Fish Overall, Offshore Billfish Release, Party Boat Award, Longest Inshore Fish, wild card prizes and more.
Bookings for charter guides and boats fill quickly, so early registration is encouraged. Spaces remain for an online rate of $119 per adult and $55 per teenager ages 13 and up.
