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:
