The 17th Bobby Holloway Jr. Memorial Fishing Tournament will be held March 28th, 2015 at Pineland Marina with an addition of the Edison Big Snook Award. “The Edison Big Snook Award not only ups the competition, but also gives us the opportunity to provide more enrichment for the youth of our community,” says Ernestine Squires, Tournament Director. “We are all excited for the new partnership this year.”
The Bobby Holloway Jr. Memorial Fishing Tournament is an opportunity to participate in a fishing tournament, indulge in the BBQ and fish fry and enjoy a fun-filled weekend. All net proceeds from the event will be donated to the Bobby Holloway Jr. Memorial Fund to benefit the youth on Pine Island and surrounding communities.
