The public is invited to participate in the “Hook Em for Caleb” Fishing Tournament planned for Saturday, August 17, 2019. In March, 14-year-old Caleb Bennett suffered a major brain injury as a result of a boating accident and proceeds from the benefit will be given to his family to cover medical expenses as he continues to recover. The fishing tournament, held at the Bradenton Yacht Club, will begin with a shotgun start at 730am and the weigh-in will be held at 430pm. The event will feature a $500 prize for first place and $250 for second place for snook, trout and redfish with three in-shore divisions: Juniors, Adult Men and Adult Women. Tournament entry fees will be $125 for six people per boat for the junior teams division and $250 per 6-person team for adults. Teams will meet on August 16th for a mandatory “Captain's Meeting” to discuss rules and tournament information. Participants and sponsors can register for the event with cash, check or by visiting
