August 20, 2009
Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

The Eleventh Annual Summer Slam is coming to the Pink Shell Resort Sept. 11-13 with a two-day tournament and one day of fishing.

Much like its sister tournament -the Caloosa Catch and Release- the object is to hook onto snook, redfish and snapper, plus a mystery fish.

The event, which will include an unlimited number of anglers, will be the last chance to qualify for the Caloosa Grand Championship. The Summer Slam is televised on The World Fishing Network

Wade fishing will be allowed.

The tournament weekend begins Friday, Sept. 11, with an open check-in at 3 p.m. and an open bar. Complimentary Land Shark Lager will be offered at all functions. You can purchase Great XX Anniversary Caloosa Limited Edition Shirts for the Summer Slam and Special Lazy Flamingo summer Slam Hats

Lunch will be provided by Good Soup; Culligan Water is available for all teams.

Two great dinners with the Captain's Meeting sponsored by Pink Shell.

Each team will be spotlighted at the two-hour weigh-in event from 3 to 5 p.m.

There will be $10,000 guaranteed and $12,000 for the Hooter's Redfish Bonanza based on 40 paid entries of $300. There will be no entries sent by mail, so visit the Web site at: and click on the Summer Slam logo for all info and an entry form.

Hotel reservations at Pink Shell must be made early. Check the Web site for updates and if you have questions call either Ron Riley at 239-671-9347 or
