Fingers O’Bannon Memorial Snook Fishing Tournament

Posted by

Tour guides from Port Sanibel Marina participated in this past weekend’s 21st Annual Fingers O’Bannon Memorial Snook Fishing Tournament, which started Thursday, April 24th and ended Saturday, April 26th.

This prestigious invite-only tournament is dedicated to the life and memory of the late Floyd “Fingers” O’Bannon. Born October 10, 1926, Fingers O’Bannon became famous for fishing our pristine local waters.  His death on September 27, 1993 prompted many to take action to remember his legacy.

All catches were measured and released.  One snook was measured each day for a two-day total.  Tournament proceeds were donated to the AMI Kids on Fort Myers Beach and the Marine Science program at FGCU.

“On behalf of Cabbage Key and the O’Bannon family,” recognized below are the winning anglers who participated in this year’s 2014 Fingers O’Bannon Invitational:

1st: Cooke, Berman, Baker 80.5

2nd: Edwards, Edwards 80.25

3rd: Wells, Kelley 79.25
