Johnny Ferlita Memorial Fishing Tournament


The 16th Annual National Pediatric Cancer Foundation Johnny Ferlita Memorial Fishing Tournament is June 16 & 17, 2017 in Tampa, Florida.

The Johnny Ferlita Memorial Fishing Tournament is a one-day, catch-and-release tournament for redfish, snook, and trout honoring the life of beloved “Speed King of the Waterways,” Johnny Ferlita. The weekend is filled with love, hope, and of course, fishing as families cast for a cure, and compete for the biggest catch.

The tournament begins at 6:30 p.m., Friday, June 16, 2017 at the Tampa Yacht and Country Club with a captain’s meeting and dinner party (individuals not interested in fishing are invited to attend the dinner party with the purchase of a ticket). Fishing will kick off Saturday, June 17, 2017 at 7:00 a.m. Fishermen return to Westshore Bay Club by 3:00 p.m. to celebrate the day’s winners with a luncheon and awards ceremony. Children are also encouraged to participate in the Kid’s Angler Division.
