The Woody Foundation hosted their fourth annual Lionfish Bash fishing tournament at Bimini Sands Resort and Marina during the weekend of August 15th-‐17th, 2014. The main purpose for the Lionfish Bash is to raise funds and awareness for the spinal cord injured community as well as Jackson Rehabilitation Hospital.
The Lionfish Bash tournament is a family event hosted in Bimini, Bahamas and our aim is to clean up the reefs by getting rid of the invasive Indo-Pacific lionfish. This species has made a new home all over the Great Bahamas Bank and into South Florida. Over the past three years, the Lionfish Bash has removed more than 1,000 lionfish from the waters around Bimini, and has raised more than $70,000 for The Woody Foundation.
