Fish For Jose 2019 takes place March 1-3rd, & tickets are now available for the weekend’s events!
Fish For Jose originated as a social media movement calling on all those who loved and watched Spanish Fly over the years to celebrate the life of Jose Wejebe on his birthday, January 18th, and do something Jose would do. The event was created for everyone, from industry leaders to the casual anglers among us, and everyone in between. And this year’s event promises to be even bigger than before.
Friday, March 1st:
4:30PM to 7:30PM – Kick-Off Party
Location – Square Grouper’s My New Joint
A bangin’ kick-off party will begin a great weekend celebrating the life of fishing legend and friend, Jose Wejebe. Get your tickets below.
Saturday, March 2nd:
8AM to 12PM- Coastal Clean-Up
Location – Meet at KOA 251 SR 939, Sugarloaf Key, FL 33042 before 8AM!
This year, we will continue to help the Florida Keys’ Hurricane Irma clean-up effort! There is still a lot of work to do to clean up our reefs and our home, and if you knew Jose, you know he’d be on the front line of the pick-up project!
