Registration continues for 2019 LCEC/United Way Catch & Release Tournament 

By Staff | Feb 22, 2019

Due to the toxic algae blooms and red tide that has plagued the Southwest Florida area and caused an unprecedented kill of gamefish in recent months, this year’s LCEC United Way Fishing Tournament will be catch & release.

Registration for the 23rd Annual LCEC United Way Catch & Release Tournament being held on April 13, 2019 at D&D Bait and Tackle on Matlacha is now open at www.uw.lcec.net.

The registration cost before April 11 is $65 per angler and $50 per student. After April 11, registration increases to $75 and $55, respectively.

A captains’ meeting will be held at 5 p.m. Friday, April 12, at D&D Bait and Tackle.

In addition to cash and prizes being awarded, there will be a silent auction, raffle and delicious BBQ! All proceeds from this tournament go directly to the United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee counties.
