The NFL and music stars are teaming up to kick off the third season of the sports fishing tournament
One of the many things I love about the Sport Fishing Championship League is the way it pairs big-name NFL stars with famous anglers abroad.
But now that SFC’s second annual The Catch Weekend is being held April 18-20 at Ft. Lauderdale’s Pier Sixty-Six Superyacht Village now features some of the most recognizable names in music, and it will be a three-day celebration that brings fans of all types together as well.
The party will kick off at The Catch stage on April 19 with multi-platinum French DJ and producer Klingande with his signature sound. Dance music duo Loud Luxury, famous for their hit song “Body” which has gone multi-platinum in nine countries with over 1.5 billion streams, will headline. Seven-time Grammy Award-winning hip-hop legend Big Boi, who achieved fame as a soloist and part of the legendary duo OutKast, will also perform. Platinum tickets are available here starting today.
And after hearing how much Big Boi loves fishing, he’ll probably be on the water all weekend too. “I’m more excited to go fishing than I am to perform!” He says. “It’s my favorite thing in the world.”
“I’ve been offshore fishing since I was two years old. I love that guy. I make sure when I travel, especially overseas, I make a point of getting out in deep water and seeing what I can catch.
“Fishing and hip-hop are not things you think about together. I hope I can help SFC reach a new, unexpected audience.”
And he’s not the only artist who loves fishing and SFC. In fact, county music star Clayton Anderson wrote a hit song about fishing. In fact, it has been selected as Fishing Song of the Year two years in a row by Hook & Barrel magazine.
“I love SFC because it’s a scene and a party. One of my favorite parts of The Catch is when everyone comes back and hangs out on the dock after a day of fishing,” he says.
“Let’s all celebrate together. They’re competing out there, they’re competing head-to-head, but everyone’s going to have a big party and enjoy it as well. It also allows the fans to interact with the big-name NFL stars. It was great to see guys like Justin Herbert hanging out with the catchers and the fans.” “Last year. It’s an event I’ve never attended before.”
The Catch Pro-Am provides amateur anglers and football fans a similarly unique fishing opportunity. The Catch Pro-Am VIP package includes your own team of four fishing with an NFL player, two nights of concert access, private concert hospitality and viewing access, concert tickets, and two nights of accommodation with venues. Five-star accommodation.
