NOTES FROM THE FIGHTIN’ CHAIR

WE COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU! To our LFO Community: The Ladies Annual Fish-Off is upon us, and it’s our 34th year! As we’ve been preparing for the tournament this year, I’ve been reflecting on all the moving parts of this tournament that come together, and am in humble amazement of the overwhelming multi-faceted support we have for this tournament year after year. Our Sponsors are the heart of our tournament, and allow us to do what we do - have an awesome, fun-filled weekend centered on fishing, while raising money for charity. Our Charities bring us the education and resources we need to help and support our local community.

...fish hard and have a fantastic tournament!

Our Committee of volunteers generously donate their time and energy to grow and keep our tournament strong. Our Anglers, their families and friends fish the tournament with enthusiasm and encouragement of our community effort. They say “it takes a village to raise a child.” And it takes a community to build a charity fishing tournament. To everyone in our LFO Community - it’s great to see you this year, and THANK YOU for being a part of our tournament community.

To Register for the Tournament visit...

See you all at the Kick-Off party and on the dock on Saturday! FISH HARD, and have a fantastic tournament!! Tight lines, Ladies! Lindsey Tenberg, Esq.

BACKGROUND & BENEFICIARIES

I

n 1986, a group of ten enthusiastic lady anglers organized the Ladies Fish-Off to raise money for a local children’s charity. The first ladies-only saltwater tournament was held at the Sands, and featured 72 boats and 125 anglers. The tournament raised $5,000 in its inaugural year. In its second year, the tournament had 127 boats and 237 anglers. The heaviest fish was a Blue Marlin caught by Kim Burgess, and the tournament netted $10,000. Most recently, 162 anglers fished on 47 boats in the 33rd Annual Fish Off, and the tournament netted $20,000. The longevity of the Ladies Fish-Off is a true testament to the fishing community in Southeast Florida. Our lady anglers are familyfocused women with a passion for fishing and their community. This tournament is planned and executed 100% by volunteers, and it is amazing what can happen when a community comes together. Since its inception, over $550,000 has been donated to our beneficiaries. As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, all the tournament proceeds go directly to The Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida, The Billfish Foundation and Freedom Fighters Outdoors. The Ladies Fish-Off also made a $1,500 contribution to the NSU Oceanographic. The RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE is a “home-away from home” for families who must travel hundreds, sometimes thousands of miles outside their own community to seek medical treatment for a child. Each house offers families a refuge from the hospital - a special place providing warm, friendly, low cost housing alternatives to parents and siblings of seriously ill children. The Ronald McDonald House in South Florida is located on the grounds of Jackson Memorial Center in Miami. Houses are designated to encourage interaction among their guests to help them cope during an extremely difficult time. Website : www.rmhcsouthflorida.org The BILLFISH FOUNDATION (TBF) is the only non-profit organization dedicated solely to conserving and enhancing billfish populations around the world. Based right here in Fort Lauderdale, TBF’s international network of supporters includes conservationminded anglers, captains, mates, scientists, policy makers, tournament directors, clubs and sportfishing businesses. A three tiered strategy of research, education and advocacy is employed by TBF in order to create marine conservation strategies that benefit oceanic resources while also empowering the recreational fishing community. TBF recognizes that future fishing opportunities depend on today’s conservation successes. If you want to help ensure continued fishing opportunities, healthy oceans and successful related economies, then TBF is the team for you! Please take a moment to visit the website and learn more about TBF’s work, become a member and make your commitment to insuring a strong fishing future for generations of anglers to come.

BILLFISH RECAPTURES

E

stablished in 2009, the Billfish Foundation’s Tag and Release Program has generated the largest private billfish tagging data resource in the world, which remains the cornerstone of TBF’s conservation and advocacy programs. With TBF receiving close to 15,000 tag and release records annually from across the globe, our database contains over 250,000 records, all contributing to what is known about billfish. More tagging is still needed to increase valuable recapture data. The success of TBF’s Tag and Release program comes from dedicated anglers, captains and mates, who voluntarily tag, release, and report their billfish catches, tags, releases and recaptures. It is the recapture data that provides the most valuable scientific data for helping to advance our understanding of billfish growth rates, migratory patterns, habitat use and post-release survival rates. Tag and release data also provides valuable information to include in stock assessments that calculate the abundance of each species remaining in the water to support continued fishing. The data contributes to the foundation upon which smart conservation policy can be built. Go to billfish.org to check out more of the recapture maps, and if you’ve been tagging fish for a while without having had one of yours recaptured, check out this sailfish that John Anderson and Tommy Tight aboard “Off the Wall” recaptured after 8.5 years!

MEET THE ARTIST

I

nternationally acclaimed and award-winning artist and designer, Dennis Friel, has cemented himself as one of the premier craftsmen in his field. With a primary focus on gamefish and pelagic environments, Dennis brings to life stunning imagery with a masterful stroke. By focusing his core talents across a wide variety of mediums, he consistently pushes the standard of what is conventionally accepted among marine wildlife painters and illustrators. His unique and fluid style is depicted with a soulful and innovative approach. Being a native South Floridian has Dennis rooted in what he calls the “mecca of marine art.” He has successfully combined his passion for the ocean and visual arts into a lifelong career. Using his experiences, travels and inherent surroundings as his ‘great influence,’ Dennis has galvanized a body of work that is supported by collectors and clientele from around the globe. From Costa Rica to Hawaii, Africa to Dubai, Australia to the Outer Banks and all parts in between - if it’s Connected By Water™ chances are his artwork is there. Since the studio’s full-time operation began, Dennis Friel has worked with some of the finest and most renowned fishing tournaments in the world, as well as the most elite vessels and fishing teams. He is a monthly illustration contributor for Marlin Magazine, a brand ambassador for Maui Jim and Olukai and recently he was named The Billfish Foundation’s ‘Artist of the Year’ in 2017, an honor among many received during his successful career spanning greater than two decades. You may also recognize this artist’s recent work adorning the Atlantic Boulevard Intracoastal bridge titled, Atlantic Harmony, here in Pompano Beach. Commissioned specifically by the city Dennis states, “Bridges are designed to connect people to places and each other. My goal for this project was to create a series of images portraying the diversity within our local marine ecosystem and a bionetwork that harmoniously reflects a sense of pride for an oceanic community that is so tightly bound to it.” Dennis Friel is an artist, fisherman, loving husband and father of two children. Along with a dedicated staff he operates a full-time local art studio, Connected By Water™, that services the custom and licensed artwork, apparel, boat wrap and accessory printing needs for boaters and anglers, as well as their own line of branded apparel and private artwork collections.
