FKO Tournament Director

Our first tournament, in July 2008, started our Florida Keys Open (FKO) history with some notable names in the spearfishing community in the Keys.  Each year, participation has surpassed the previous year and the home base of the shooters has expanded to other areas in Florida and throughout the United States.  In 2010  year, a 75.8 pound Black Grouper was the highlight of the tournament with over 65 fish weighted in.  In 2011, we had the most shooters ever in our tournament with more fish speared than ever. Another highlight...we had more lady shooters than ever before.  Unfortunately, we were unable to have the tournament in 2012 but we are committed stronger than ever to having the tournament this year, 2013.
