52nd Annual BUCCANEER CUP
Florida’s Premiere Sailfish Tournament!
January 22 – 24, 2015
The Buccaneer Cup Sailfish Release Tournament is a Florida sport fishing tradition that billfish anglers have looked forward to each January for over 50 years!
You’ll be attending the captain’s meeting at the historic Buccaneer Restaurant & Marina on Singer Island, the same place legends of the sport gathered during the winter sailfish run for drinks, cigars and to trade tales after long days on the water. And it that’s not enough history the awards dinner will be back at the Sailfish Club of Palm Beach, a fishing institution for the past 100 years!
You’ll be fishing Gulf Stream waters that are the birthplace of billfishing. An area alive with Atlantic sailfish during the winter migration period when a turn of the weather can produce fishing that is by any definition world class!
You’ll be fishing an event that at its core is held to benefit two worthwhile recipients. The Florida Fish for Life Cancer Charity and the Recreational Fishing Alliance split the proceeds, nothing held back.
This year tournament directors Fred Miller and Gary Caputi welcome back Courtney Bowden to reprise her role as event coordinator after doing such a great job in 2014. The plan is to expand participation through a broader offering of Calcutta levels so there are more opportunities to win whether you fish live or dead bait, and to return the tournament to the prominence it deserves! Check out the new Calcutta program here.
The Buccaneer Cup turned a big corner two years ago, 50 consecutive years of competition, and now it’s all about the future and making it bigger and better with each successive year! Please join us and our growing list of sponsors and be among great people who share a passion for fishing. Who knows, maybe you’ll become part of sportfishing history.
