Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

Spearcrafters by Lou Bonsey

We'd like to welcome back a long time sponsor for the TBSC, Lou makes some of the best shafts you will ever shoot. Highest grade of steel fine tuned for killing big fish!

http://spearcrafters.com/index.html

"Get a Shaft without getting Shafted" is not just a catchy phrase.
At Spearcrafters you will find only the highest quality spearfishing shafts at very reasonable prices. Our shafts are hand made from aircraft-grade 17/4ph stainless steel and are heat-treated to remain hard and retain their spring. Our spearfishing shafts come in a wide variety of styles and lengths for whatever type of diving and fishing you do. We have freeshafts, lineshafts, and speedshafts for SCUBA divers and free divers alike. We have spearfishing shafts with and without fins, with and without barbs, with and without threaded tips, with and without rest tabs, and with and without notches. If you can't find a spearfishing shaft to fit your diving needs please feel free to contact us to get a quote on a custom spearfishing shaft made just for your needs.

Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

Arriving as a new platinum sponsor for 2016, FishBrain is the largest worldwide fishing community, consisting of 1.7 million users and over 800,000 catch reports logged. Hailed as the #1 fishing app, the "instagram of fishing" app allows users to brag about their catch, share details about the catch either publicly or privately, and compete against friends. Utilizing predictive analytics, the catch data can be used to forecast the best time, tide, bait, etc. to catch fish. Updates coming soon include: direct messaging, video catch logs, spearfishing and bow fishing techniques. Visit the FishBrain booth at the weigh-in/prize ceremony for more information!

Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

New to the spearfishing tournament community, please welcome Freedom Boat Club! An alternative to boat ownership, the club offers members unlimited access to all locations in the bay area, as well as access to every location worldwide. With new additions to Tierra Verde and Hernando, FBC has over a 100 boats to meet the needs of every style boater. The biggest question for us would be, "can we spearfish from the boats?" The answer is yes!

From family outings on the pontoon, to running offshore in a 23' center console, members look forward to coming into the dock and letting someone else clean the boat for a change! Look for Freedom Boat Club of Tampa Bay representatives at the weigh-in and prize ceremony.

Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

For the most comfortable seat offshore, get an E Sea Rider Beanbag! Guaranteed! This sponsor needs no introduction since the name says it all. E-Searider Marine Beanbags are the only way to stay comfortable on those long rides out to your fishing spots. The original, and still the leader in the marine beanbag industry.
Pat Bennett and his family have been huge supporters of all fishing and spearfishing events everywhere. Thanks for the many years of support!

Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

If you've ever watched anything on television that has to do with the ocean's extreme underwater environment then you've probably seen it through their camera lens...

TBSC is very excited to welcome a new first time Silver Sponsor, Liquid Productions, http://liquidproductions.com/

Check out some of their amazing pictures and adventures on Face Book too, https://www.facebook.com/LiquidProductionsLLC/?fref=ts

Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

We want to welcome back, The Tampa Bay Brewing Company! Mike and Dave Doble have been brewing beer in the local area since 1995. They are also passionate about our sport and have participated in The St. Pete Open, Suncoast Challenge and other local events to support Reef Donkey APA one of their newest beers in the collection. This Dry-hopped American Pale Ale is made using a secret selection of hops to give this nice dry beer a lemon/lime aroma and citrus & slight tropical fruit flavor. Although this brew Hits the classification of an APA, it drinks like a session IPA perfect for a day on the boat fishing the reef. Reef Donkey is slang for the Greater Amberjack game fish which inhabit our coastal wrecks and reefs. We hope to see some large AJ shot during the tournament this year while we enjoy a few cold ones!

Please visit the Ybor City Brewpub at 1600 East 8th Avenue Ybor City Tampa, FL 33605; Westchase Restaurant 13937 Monroe’s Business Park Tampa, FL 33635 or on line at https://www.tampabaybrewingcompany.com/
