The Greater Lantana Chamber of Commerce announces the 19th Annual Lantana Fishing Derby, Presented by Republic Services, and with our Executive Sponsors D&D Automotive, Palm Beach Yacht Center, Murrelle Marine, Loggerhead Marina, Lumitec, and Hypoluxo Storage.
This year's event is being held in Memory of "Capt. Bob" Spickler, of Perk's Bait and Tackle, a longtime supporter and sponsor.

It's a great local tournament, with over $10,000 in cash and prizes.
This year we've dropped the registration fees by $25. Early registration is only $175 for a boat with four anglers! Early entries participate in a free raffle for $250 in fuel, custom tackle, jewelry and more!

A highlight of the weekend is our Kids' Tournament. We take 50 underprivileged children pier fishing. Each kid gets a brand new spinning rod and reel and tackle box, and we show them how to bait, cast, and hopefully catch a fish. The winners receive trophies, and the child with the largest fish wins a new bike!

The weekend kicks off with the Captains Party on Thursday, May 2nd, at the Grumpy Grouper,
with a free buffet and entertainment. All are welcome, even if you're not fishing the tournament.

We fish on Saturday, May 4 - start out of any inlet. Boats departing from Boynton will be blessed by Father David Kennedy as they pass under the bridge. Lines in at 7 a.m.
The weigh-in is at the the Old Key Lime House dock, from noon until 3:30.
If you're not fishing, come up to the Lake Worth pier to see the kids fish from 9 'till noon, the head down the to Old Key Lime House to watch the weigh-in while enjoying a cold beverage.

Sunday, May 5 is our Awards Party at the Old Key Lime House, beginning at 11:30.
We have a huge raffle (tickets $2 and $5) and a great silent auction. Bid on fish cleaning tables, custom rods, art, jewelry, and many other items. Everyone's welcome!

Hope to see you - if you can't fish, come join us at the parties!

Federales, bring my baby back to me!
