A truly Downtown Tampa Tournament—Port Tampa Bay's 3rd annual fishing tournament, dubbed Port Tampa BaySlam, is a one day, 5 species, catch and release bay-style fishing tournament.
Similar to Port Tampa Bay's Golf Tournament in the Spring and Anchor Ball in the Fall, the Port Tampa BaySlam tournament will be a fundraiser for several worthy causes:
- Tampa Bay Maritime Scholarship Foundation Inc. — providing scholarships to students in need seeking to further their study in Maritime sciences and maritime related careers
- Tampa Bay Watch — Tampa Bay Watch is dedicated to the protection and restoration of the Tampa Bay estuary through scientific and educational programs
- Seafarer's Center — providing a home-away-from home and a non-denominational, spiritual activity center for traveling mariners to Port Tampa Bay
