Fishing & BBQ – Father's Day Weekend



The Old Salt Fishing Foundation presents the 5th Annual 102.5 The Bone Fishing Slam and BBQ Festival. This family friendly, inshore - offshore FREE fishing tournament will be held June 18th, 19th & 20th, 2015. Making the event bigger and better everyone's favorite summer time food: BBQ will be on hand for the 2nd year… with The Baddest BBQ on the Bone. All of this on Father's Day Weekend!

The Fishing Tournament is designed for anyone that wants to spend a day on the water fishing with an opportunity to win CASH. You can fish from land, a dock, a boat or a kayak, its up to you. Here's how it works: You register for the tournament on the Old Salt website, come out to the Captain's Party and check in, eat some BBQ and go fishing. It's really that simple!

The timing, Fathers Day weekend, was chosen to provide a fun filled outdoor event for families and friends spending time on and around the water, making memories that will last a life time.

“Part of the Old Salt mission statement is to support family interaction and camaraderie through fishing and this tournament fits that statement perfectly,” said President of the Old Salt, Tom Verdensky. “This is an event like none other. The fishing tournament is free and will pay out $20,000 in cash. There will also be prizes for our youth & ladies divisions with 18 different species to fish for, which is over 90 different ways to win!” Making this the perfect event for any saltwater enthusiast! says Verdensky.

The BBQ festival brings together 60 of the top teams from around the south, cooking their way to the top to claim bragging rights in the 2nd Annual BADDEST BBQ on the BONE contest. The winning team from this year's event will get an invitation to compete in the Jack Daniel's 2015 World Championship invitational. The Baddest BBQ on the Bone runs concurrently with the Fishing Slam and is jam packed with anglers, BBQ enthusiasts and anyone looking for a good time in the Tampa Bay Area (and that's a lot of folks!)
