Captain Tom Butcher's Team wins Redfish+ Outing!

Team Butcher - Tom, Gary Long, Dick Turner, and David Lewis won the November 12 Redfish+ Outing with four nice redfish.  Frank Torbey caught this nice snook with Captain Duane Thurow.                            

 SIFC members volunteered to make the Ding Darling Kid's Fishing Derby a huge success!!  Over 90 area children fished off the causeway on November 26th.  Club volunteers were:  Jim Kuharich, Curt Will, Doug and Jeanne Mallon, John Carney, Kim Owens (Ft Myers Beach Tarpon Hunters), Don Cook, Warren Tiegen, Duane Thurow, Ron Taverna and Billy Kirkland.  And a special thanks to Ken Kopperl, who pulled together our effort!!  PHOTOS VIA THIS LINK,
