LCEC United Way Fishing Tournament returns to North Fort Myers

By Staff | Apr 20, 2011

On April 30, LCEC will host the 15th Annual LCEC United Way Saltwater Fishing Tournament. This milestone tournament is being held at one of Southwest Florida’s best fishing locations — Pine Island Sound, Charlotte Harbor.

In addition to a large following, this tournament is known for fantastic raffles and prices, delicious foods and fun times. In 2010, the LCEC tournament raised more than $23,000 to benefit United Way agencies in Lee, Hendry and Glades counties.

The cost per person is $50 before April 27 and $75 thereafter. A mandatory captain’s meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on April 29 at D & D Matlacha Bait and Tackle. All participants will receive a commemorative shirt, hat and meal. Meals for guests and non-fisherman can be purchased for $5 during weigh-in.
