Former Dolphin linebacker Lee Robinson’s 47.9-pound kingfish — caught with skipper Terry Claus on Team Qualifier — was the heaviest catch in last year’s Miami Dolphins’ Foundation Fins Weekend Fishing Tournament, held out of Miami Beach Marina.
The tournament, which takes place this year on June 7, brings together pro players and alumni to fish with professional and amateur anglers to help raise funds for the local community.
The tournament has raised more than $3 million for the local community and is the Miami Dolphins Foundation’s largest event, which runs along with the Fins Weekend Golf tournament.
All money raised will go back into the charity, but the anglers will be awarded prizes for the heaviest catch in each the of target species: kingfish, dolphin, tuna and wahoo.
The one day of fishing will conclude at the call for lines out at 4 p.m., and the winners will be determined at ‘Hooter weigh-ins’ dockside at 5 p.m.
