Welcome to the Redbone - We are dedicated to bringing together a unique group of sportsman and women who respect the outdoors and relish every opportunity to connect with it. Athletes and anglers, guides and celebrities, all come to fish. And by fishing, they contribute much more than their time. We are a non-profit (501c) company that raises money "To Catch The Cure" for cystic fibrosis.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disease affecting approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. A defective gene causes the body to produce an abnormally thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections. These thick secretions also obstruct the pancreas, preventing digestive enzymes from reaching the intestines to help break down and absorb food. The mucus also can block the bile duct in the liver, eventually causing permanent liver damage in approximately six percent of people with CF.
We offer a series of fishing tournaments throughout the year. The trilogy of Florida Keys Tournaments includes Cheeca Redbone in November, and the Mercury SLAM and Mercury Baybone in September. In addition we offer many Redbone at Large tournaments throughout the United States and the Bahamas. Visit our tournaments area for schedules of tournaments and events offered by Redbone.
Redbone has a quarterly journal called the Redbone Journal. The Redbone Journal is focused on the wonders of our natural environment. In our South Florida setting, the bountiful surroundings have granted silvery fish, jeweled waters, and flowered palm frond beauty that draws anglers from around the world. Attention is given to issues that may benefit or detract from the preservation of these life-giving riches.
In addition to tournaments and a quarterly magazine, Redbone has a fabulous art gallery with works of art revolving around saltwater fishing. Redbone Saltwater Art Gallery has become Florida's largest saltwater fishing art gallery. Visit the Gallery in Islamorada, FL., or you may view many of the artists works online....
