Anglers Reel In Record $140,000 net revenue in 2013 RedSnook Tournament for Conservancy of Southwest Florida!

Forty-six teams participated in the 2013 RedSnook Catch & Release Charity Tournament that took place November 1-3, generating a record $140,000 net revenue to support the water quality protection and gamefish research conducted by Conservancy of Southwest Florida.

Wayne A. Meland, of Morgan Stanley, sponsored the event. Meland also served as a co-chair of the event along with Rhett Robicheaux, of Naples Yacht Club.

“We are very happy with the record-breaking results this year. The amount of support from the community, the anglers and the guides is simply overwhelming,” said Conservancy President and CEO Rob Moher. 

Moher added, “I’d like to extend a special thanks to Wayne Meland, Rhett Robicheaux and the rest of the RedSnook Committee for their dedication to the event and the leadership they’ve provided throughout the planning process.”

The weekend began with a Kick-Off Party that included both silent and live auctions at Naples Yacht Club. The competition started on Saturday morning and continued again on Sunday. The event concluded with an awards ceremony on Sunday evening at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida Eaton Conservation Hall, with food provided by Outback Steakhouse.

“The 20th anniversary of RedSnook was a great, record-setting success,” said Meland. “We’d like to thank all of the participants for their continued support. The water quality work and gamefish studies undertaken by the Conservancy are more important than ever to help protect our tourist-driven economy.”
