Redfish Festival and Fishing Competition

Monday, May 4th, 2009

Punta Gorda recently saw the kick off of the seventh annual Redfish Cup. The Redfish Cup coincides with our city’s Redfish Festival and Punta Gorda has the distinction of being the only permanent stop for the circuit. Ask any of the anglers and they’ll tell you that the Punta Gorda/Port Charlotte area knows how to treat its boaters.  There are celebrations, kids events and even dog jumping contests that all happen around the actual fishing tournament providing lots of excitement and entertainment for locals and visiting fishermen alike. Read more about the 2009 Redfish Cup event in Punta Gorda or the 2008 Redfish Cup event to learn more about the festival.
