‘Tween Waters to host Funtastic Fourth Fishing Derby

By Staff | May 11, 2010

Spend Independence Day honoring tradition and starting a few new traditions of your own at ‘Tween Waters Inn Island Resort. 

The Fourth of July Weekend at ‘Tween Waters Inn is a fun-filled day, starting with the Second Annual Funtastic Fourth Fishing Derby — a half-day tournament free to all guests with Fourth of July reservations for three or more nights. After a fish-filled day, enjoy a mouth-watering new tradition: a Captiva Island Roast, replete with slow roasted pig.

The fishing tournament is Saturday, July 3 from 8 to 11 a.m., with registration available daily at the Marina at ‘Tween Waters from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. leading up to the tournament. The tournament is free for all ages, with a three-day reservation or more.

There will be three age groups and two categories, including the longest single fish and total number of fish caught. Prizes will be awarded at 5 p.m. This is a catch-and-release tournament, and all participants 16 and over must have a Florida fishing license. 

Complete the Fourth of July evening with the all-you-can-eat Captiva Island Roast, from 5 to 9 p.m. The Island Roast is $18.95 for two dinners for all guests staying three or more nights. Kids 10 and under eat free. Visitors and guests not staying three nights or more are encouraged to dig in for only $18.95 per person.

“We take fun seriously here ‘Tween Waters Inn,” said general manager Jeff Shuff. “We want to see all of our guests soaking in as much as they can this Fourth of July.”

The Crow’s Nest at ‘Tween Waters Inn will “host the roast” so join in the fun and sample the delicious menu items including: slow roasted suckling pig, coleslaw, corn on the cob, baked beans and Key lime tarts. These tasty items partner perfect with “two for one” draft beer. Barbecue Chicken and the regular menu will also be available.
