Captain Duane Thurow is SIFC Angler of Year!

  Team Thurow - Duane, Sandy Tannenbaum and Curt Will won the May 15 Tarpon Outing.  This sealed the deal for Duane becoming Angler of Year.  This makes two in a row for Duane.  Congratulations to Duane and the top 5 listed to the right!

 SIFC members Mary Laser and Gary Biltgen teamed with Wade Robert and Captain Matt Mitchell to win the 2016 Doc Fords / Ding Darling Tarpon Tournament. Their Chasin' Poon team won $12K in this 50 team tournament. Biltgen was also Senior Angler of Tournament. 

SIFC presented The Sanibel Commuity House $1000 for renovations to the facility.  We look forward to continuing our meetings in a fresh new meeting room in November 2016! Our October 2016 meeting will be held at the Library, while renovations are being completed.
