The FSFA Offshore Slam Sport Fishing Tournament was a huge success this year.
The weigh-in at Sunrise Marina on Saturday was full of fun with live entertainment, raffle prizes, giveaways, food, and drinks.

The Dolphin category was won by Tsaseaki with a 25.1lb catch. As for Grouper, Point Blank took first place with a 36.1lb fish. In the highly contested Kingfish category, Knight’s Quest took the win with a 39.9lb entry. As for Big Cobia, Doing Triple landed the biggest fish with a 29.7lb fish. The Big Amberjack award went to Relentless II, with an arm burning 50.2lb fish brought in.
The Ladies category was won by Salter Life with a 30.4lb Kingfish. The #proudDad award went to Greg Rapp as he watched his sons win in the Juniors category. The winning Junior catch came in on SeaSons with a 21.1lb Kingfish entry.
Congratulations to all of the winning boats and thank you to the sponsors, participants, volunteers and marina staff who came together for another awesome fishing tournament this year. We think this is one of the best tournaments in Florida for fisherman and families. We hope to see you again next year to celebrate the 50th Annual FSFA Offshore Slam and share in the good times.
About the FSFA Offshore Slam Fishing Rules and winning categories:
The Big Fish Grand Prize in the amount of $5,000 will be awarded to the angler who weighs the heaviest fish. This is a stand-alone category and the winning fish will not be eligible for other categories. Both ladies and juniors are eligible for Big Fish Grand Prize. Must be eligible General Division tournament species: Dolphin, Wahoo, Kingfish, Grouper (Grey or Red, No WARSAW). In the event of a tie the winning fish will be the first fish that was weighed at the tournament scale. Fish entered in Big Fish do not have to be declared as such. When ‘knocked out’ of this category the fish automatically is placed in the General Division.
A cash prize will be awarded for the Heaviest weight Cobia and for the Heaviest Amberjack (AJ). The cash prize for each heaviest fish is $1,000. Neither Cobia nor AJ qualifies for General Division, Big Fish Grand Prize, Ladies or Junior Divisions.

1st through 3rd: Heaviest weight of any General Division eligible species caught by a junior & tagged at the dock as a junior fish. Junior awards are Recognition Awards. All Juniors are encouraged to weigh their catch! Each Junior weighing a fish will receive a raffle ticket for a special gift.
1st through 5th – largest of each eligible species. Any angler can enter fish in this general category regardless of gender or age. A fish declared and tagged at the weigh in dock as Ladies or Junior may also be entered in the appropriate (Ladies / Junior) category.
