2019 TBSC Tournament Sponsors

We'd like to welcome back Tampa Bay Brewing Company as a Title Sponsor!! TBBC has been brewing beer in the Tampa area since 1995 and is a also huge supporter of the spearfishing community. They are responsible for crafting the award-winning Reef Donkey APA, which is a slang term for the Greater Amberjack that inhabit our coastal wrecks and reefs. While AJs won't be open for this year's tournament, there will be plenty of Reef Donkey APA flowing so get registered and come enjoy a cold one on us!!

Re: 2019 TBSC Tournament Sponsors

Back again to support the 2019 Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge and the lionfish eradication effort, we'd like to welcome back Zookeeper LCU to the tournament!! The Zookeeper is a device that makes it safer to harvest lionfish and has been a huge help for divers who were unable to adequately hunt lionfish in larger quantities with traditional spearfishing gear. So be sure to get registered for the tournament for a chance to take home a Zookeeper for yourself!
