This Wednesday, January 16th, the much-anticipated for Quest for the Crest Sailfish Series begins with Operation Sailfish! This patriotic sailfish tournament has the admirable mission to honor the men and women U.S. veterans who have served and continue to serve our country. Not only is there an estimated $800,000 purse, but fierce competition in pursuit of the Operation Sailfish dog tags reserved exclusively for the top dogs of the tournament. Each year, only one set is awarded. Congrats to Weez in the Keys for earning this brag-worthy piece of jewelry from 2018. Who’s next?
The event will kick-off with an official Military Salute Wednesday night at Sailfish Marina, followed by the captain’s meeting complimented by live music, food, a silent auction, and of course- libations.
Thursday, world-class fishing teams will have the honor of taking local veterans offshore for “Take a Hero Fishing Day”, followed by a 5pm cocktail reception and 5:30 daily awards. A portion of the proceeds from Operation Sailfish will also be donated to Operation Homefront, a four-star nonprofit organization who strives to build strong, stable and secure military families so they can thrive in the communities they've worked so hard to protect.

On Friday and Saturday, elite sailfishing teams will man their battlewagons for lines in at 8:00 am, along with lines out at 4:00 pm followed by a 5:30 pm docktail hour.
The Awards Ceremony will begin with a Sunday Brunch at 11:00 am, followed by awards presentations at 12:00 pm, and a closing ceremony at 1:00 pm.
