Fish Heads of Stuart proudly announced in mid-October that “The Quickie” will launch the Treasure Coast’s 2020/2021 sailfish tournament season. The fifth annual Quickie dates are Nov. 30 – Dec 2. Center stage for the tournament will be Sailfish Marina, home of Fish Heads of Stuart.

“The Quickie is a ‘shout out’ to tournament predecessors. For years, the Quickie has been a tournament crowd favorite and we think it fitting to keep this event in the forefront of the Treasure Coast’s sailfish tournaments,” said Brent Kane, owner of Fish Heads of Stuart.

Sticking with Stuart’s tradition, the Quickie is a dead bait/conventional reel tournament. Setting the Quickie apart from other tournaments however is its angler-friendly format.

“Hook and hand – no problem. This is a fun, easy to fish, two-day tournament,” added Kane.

Entry fee is $1,300 per boat and includes six anglers and six tickets to the Dec. 2 awards dinner. Tournament prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place finishers.
