Lady anglers looking for competition and camaraderie, as well as a chance to raise money for a good cause, can still join the Islamorada Women's Sailfish Tournament scheduled Friday through Sunday, Feb. 7-9.

Set against a fundraising backdrop of a silent auction and raffle, the tournament kicks off Friday with a 6-8 p.m. registration, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, and a rules meeting at Marker 88 Restaurant, mile marker 88 in Islamorada.

Money raised through the 2014 fishing event is to fund a trip for Keys teen girls to a national American Youth Soccer Organization championship.

Two days of light-tackle fishing are planned, with lines in the water Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Cocktails are to begin at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner and the awards ceremony at Marker 88.

Awards are to be presented to the grand champion team (boat), captain and mate; first runner-up and second runner-up team, captain and mate; and high-point angler. Awards also await the anglers scoring the most outstanding catch and the largest tuna, dolphin and kingfish.

Up to four anglers are permitted per boat. Entry fee is $495 for the first angler on a vessel and $450 for each additional angler. The fee includes an angler gift and one social ticket for each tournament night.
