Please join us for the 11th Annual Michael Shields Memorial Inshore Open which will be held October 4th & 5th at the River Palm Cottages & Fish Camp in Jensen Beach.  Open to both children and adults, it is the largest inshore fishing tournament along the Treasure Coast. 

The Open is named after longtime Martin County resident Michael Shields, who died at the age of 23 from bone cancer. It follows a catch and release format, with separate categories for snook, tarpon, trout, and redfish.  There is a Captain’s Party on Friday the 4th. Everyone 21 Years Old and Over is welcome!  Party includes a full open bar, dinner, live music, DJ, raffles and Silent Auction.  On Saturday we host a Family Style Awards BBQ.

The Open is held to raise critically-needed funds for the programs of Project LIFT.
