Back to Series page



Celebrating our 39th year, we are the oldest multi species tournament on the West coast of Florida. Originating in 1983, the tournament serves a tribute to Colonel Sam Crosthwait, in recognition of his passion for his high moralistic ideals and love for the distinct camaraderie that surrounds the unique sport of angling. The event will take place May 19-21, 2023, at the Bradenton Yacht Club.

Each year in May, hundreds of anglers and thousands of community spectators attend this cherished community event, which is run by a volunteer committee of more than 40 people.

Professional Guides and amateur fisherman may participate! Winning anglers are awarded with trophies, cash, and prizes solely derived from their entry fees. Charitable funds directed back to the local community are derived from sponsors, advertisers, and gifts.

Proudly, the Crosthwait has donated over $220,000 back to the community over the last 10 years. Whether through providing scholarships to support the education of local young anglers, supporting the Marine Mechanics Program at Manatee Technical College and the Fish and Game Association, the Crosthwait Committee is proud of our philanthropic mission and continued support of our local community. The proceeds from the 2023 tournament will be awarded to the Tampa Bay Estuary Program, whose mission is to build partnerships to restore and protect Tampa Bay through implementation of a scientifically sound, community-based management plan. The plan revolves around three program priorities: Clean Waters and Sediments; Thriving Habitats and Abundant Wildlife; and an Informed, Engaged and Responsible Community.
