8th Annual Triton Inshore Slam Fishing Tournament


We experienced another beautiful day for our eighth annual Friends of the Waterfront event!  This year's chartered fleet included eleven professionally guided boats with 33 fisher-friends onboard.  Participants included parents, college staff, corporate supporters, alumni, and current students.  We had many anglers who have been with us from the start as well as many newcomers who joined in the fun!   fishaward12

We were fortunate to have substantial support once again from the Phoenix Venture Philanthropy Foundation through their major sponsorship.  Other sponsors included Bon Appetit, Indian Springs Marina, and Allen Sports Center.   The tournament ended with a delicious lunch provided by the Phoenix group, a raffle drawing, and presentation of the awards to the winners.

Congratulations to our new reigning Champions for 2012

James - Tournament Master Angler

Many Thanks go to all those friends who supported and participated to make this year’s event so successful!  We look forward to next year!
