Catch & Eat Some Lions!

You’re invited to partner in the second annual Sarasota Lionfish Derby. This exciting and environmentally beneficial event will be hosted by Mote Marine Laboratory, a world-class marine science institution, in cooperation with Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF), which helps study and address the lionfish invasion and sanctions official Lionfish Derbies, and ZooKeeper, the Sarasota-based manufacturer of the leading lionfish containment unit used throughout invaded areas.

Lionfish Derbies are an important way to harvest large numbers of this invasive species that has spread along the eastern Atlantic coast, Columbia to Escambia counties. Derbies help divers harvest lionfish, provide public education and opportunities to taste the delicious lionfish for free.

This year’s event will be based at Mote, with a captains’ meeting on July 10, lionfish hunting July 11 in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico — tournament boundaries are defined as Collier County to Escambia County — and the lionfish weigh-in July 12 at the Sarasota Outboard Club next door to Mote.

Just a friendly PSA for all you Crabbies out there courtesy of Brenda Aichele Kammerer. Saddest part? A female crab can only 'mate' once. Makes us feel bad for Kathy (we named her that) who lives underneath our dock. She doesn't even realize she'll never be able to have any more lil ones...

After a short delay for a bit of partying, here are the results of the 2015 World's Richest Tarpon Tournament. Thank you to all the anglers and captains who participated in this year's tournament. First place went to Lucky Lady and Captain Steve Ahlers. They had four releases during the tournament. The team took home WRTT rings, their team name on the perpetual trophy and a check for $22,000. This was Stevie Ahlers' third World's Richest win! He also received the Jay Joiner Memorial belt buckle, presented to him by Jay's mom, Betsy Joiner. That's Captain Ahlers in the pictures holding the trophy with Captain Cappy Joiner and Betsy. The second place team was on the Tracy Lynn with Captain Willie Mills. There were several boats that got three releases, but Captain Mills' team got theirs first. They all got trophies and a team check for $11,000. The third place team with the last fish hooked up was on the Casuarina with Captain Charlie Coleman. They all got trophies and a team check for $5,500. We have posted the photos of the leader boards for day one and day two above. You can read the full story next week in The Boca Beacon. We will also have all the tournament photos posted on the Boca Beacon website by the end of next week. What a great tournament with 27 releases! Thank you everyone!!
