The fishing tournament is at 8 a.m. April 11 at Hooters, 5336 Treadway Drive in Port Richey.

"It will be a great opportunity to spend a day on the water and help support our community college," Monica Mills, vice chairwoman of the PHCC Foundation board of directors, said in a statement.

The PHCC Foundation was established in 1975 to seek private support to enhance the college's academic programs, according to its Web site, and has become a leading community college foundation with assets of more than $26-million.

Opportunities are available for sponsorships and angler teams. All angler teams include a boat, professional guide, breakfast, boxed lunch and beverages, bait and tackle, official tournament T-shirts, goodie bags and tickets to the Captain's Party. No experience is necessary and the event is all-inclusive.

Tournament species categories are snook, trout and redfish. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place for combined total inches.

A prize will also be awarded for biggest single fish in each category. A master angler award will be given for biggest cobia.

  1. Rays let early lead get away again in loss to Angels (w/video)

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  3. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has

    Sports

    ST. PETERSBURG

    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
