Dorado Boats is hosting their 2nd Annual Inshore Fishing Tournament benefiting the Toys for Tots Foundation and Captains for Clean Water. This tournament is a two day event with a Captain's Party on Friday night which will include a silent auction. The inshore catch and release tournament is on Saturday with lines in at 7am.

The UPDATED fishing boundaries are Egmont Key to Crystal River. There will be over $10,000 in cash and prizes as well as food and drinks at the awards/weigh in ceremony. There is a bonus cash payout for all 1st place category winners fishing out of a Dorado Boat. Every team is eligible for one prize. If the team has 2 fish as a possible winner, they will be awarded the larger of the two prizes. In the event of a tie, the first fish photo received will be the winner.

Benefitting the Toys for Tots Foundation:
The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community.

Also benefitting Captains for Clean Water:
Captains For Clean Water is a Grassroots Nonprofit Organization Advocating for Clean Water & Healthy Estuaries Across South Florida.
Captains For Clean Water started out as a group of fishing guides that “had enough” of Florida’s poor water management practices. Given the destruction seen firsthand, we were convinced that if everyone knew what we knew, the problem would have been already fixed. We discovered, the solution has been delayed for decades because of a lack of political will and public awareness.
