The Steinhatchee Projects board is putting on its annual fishing tournament Saturday March 14th. Lots of great prizes and fun.
New catagory added: Largest Red Grouper $600 prize.
The annual Steinhatchee 4th of July celebration will take place this year on Monday July 4th starting at 6:00 p.m. There will be lots of food, games and music.
The often imitated but never duplicated world famous Mullet Toss starts at 7:00 p.m.
The fireworks display will start at dusk. Keep in mind that the bridge will be closing at 8:30 so make sure you are in your favorite spot by then.
The fireworks are being paid for this year by a golf cart raffle, so pick up those raffle tickets at local businesses. The golf cart winner will be drawn before the start of the fireworks.

This year’s Steinhatchee Community Fishing Tournament was extended to a two day event due to weather. In years past this meant the contestant could weigh their catch in at Keaton Beach or Steinhatchee. This held true this year if you braved the harsh winds on Saturday, but if you held off until Sunday your only choice for weigh-in was the Steinhatchee Community Center.
The tournament traditionally has four species of fish that are eligible for prizes. They are Grouper and Amberjack for offshore and Trout and Redfish for inshore. Due to rough weather offshore no entries were made for Amberjack and Grouper.
