15th Annual Kingfish Shootout 2018

The Kingfish Shootout is a huge annual event that takes place in Carrabelle Florida every year. Each year fishermen and women go out and compete in catching the largest kingfish that they can bring home. There was food, drinks, music, great view of the bay, raffles that included a grill and a real nice boat, and awards to those who caught the biggest fish.

It as great to get to see this ole guy. His name is Dakota Massey. I played football with him back in the day. He was in a horrible car accident that should have claimed his life. But through the grace of God, he is alive and doing well. He even fished the Kingfish Tournament and help to raise money for this cause. 

 These guys of team Outta Sight caught the largest King Fish of the tournament weighing in at 39.1 lbs. If you would like to see the rest of the competitors and their big catches follow the link below.   http://www.c-quartersmarina.com/index.html

Panhandle Outdoors was also at the event and designed a video covering all the action including a special interview with Mr. Jimmy Crowder himself. You can watch the video here.  

The food was spectacular, the raffles prizes were great, and the family atmosphere was wonderful. But let's not forget the sole reason why we invest our blood, sweat, tears, and funds to the Kingfish Shootout ever year.

This entire event is about keeping a promise to a daughter in order to raise money for research to save the many other mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, daughters and sons out there. All proceeds of this event go to the Leukemia Research Foundation. This year they broke their own record of raising over 1 million dollars. There were so many tears when it was all said and done. We are all Team Lisa Crowder, and we are all fighting for a cure.
