FORT MYERS, FL - One hundred corporate sponsors will join Florida Gulf Coast University athletic coaches and student-athletes to kickoff the 13th Annual Caloosa Catch & Release fishing tournament Thursday, May 23 at 4 p.m. in the FGCU Whitaker Hall Sprint Room.

The Caloosa Catch & Release, running June 6-9 at South Seas Resort on Captiva Island, is the largest single site inshore fishing tournament in Florida.

“Year after year this tournament provides excellent fishing, great competition and offers fun for everyone,” tournament director Ron Riley said. “In addition, the auction is a great place for tournament participants and the general public to come together, bid on great merchandise, and to raise money for a great cause.”

The growing athletic program at FGCU will again benefit from the net proceeds of this event.
