The Oldest Running Sailfish Tournament In The World!
Each January, fishermen and charter boats compete for the most Sailfish releases. The tournament is limited to 50 boats and only takes place for a two-day time period.
Established in 1935 by the West Palm Beach Fishing Club, the only three years the Silver Sailfish Derby did not run was during WWII (1943-45). Now that’s dedication.
As one of the first tournaments to incorporate gamefish tagging for research and scientific purposes, there is a lot of history packed into this derby.
They even have their own Silver Sailfish Derby magazine, featuring the outcomes of the annual tournament.
