Dolphins Chasing Dolphins

Instead of Miami Dolphins catching passes and punts, the players went after dolphin of the fishy kind. It was all part of the Miami Dolphins Foundation that hosted their 23rd annual Fins Weekend in early June. The event featured fishing and golf tournaments with proceeds helping teens transform their education.

The fishing competition took place off Miami aboard charter boats departing the Miami Beach Marina. At the weigh-in at day's end, most catches turned out to be dolphin and blackfin tuna. The top team consisted of John Bell, Josh Coe, Ralph Pegano and Scott Shane.

Meanwhile, golfers teed it up at a golf course on Miami Beach. After the golf and fishing, Dolphins players, coaches, staff, cheerleaders, participants and partygoers gathered under a tent at the Miami Marine Stadium to enjoy music, munchies and camaraderie.

Dolphins players Michael Deiter and Jamiyus Pittman are experienced anglers and enjoyed being out on the water. "It's all about fishing for a good cause," said Deiter. Dolphins inside linebacker Raekwon McMillan doesn't fish very often, but added, "I wanted to support my teammates on the water as well as on the field."

“This is all about the power of teamwork," said Miami Dolphins Foundation Executive Director Jennifer Jehn. "Everyone coming together for a day of fishing and golf helps to create a brighter future for our youth.”
