Islamorada’s Ocean View Inn & Sports Bar welcomed a large contingent of Miami Hurricane fans for a welcome party and meet-and-greet with some UM Sports Hall of Famers on June 20. For the first time in several years, the University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame & Museum’s Celebrity Fishing Tournament returned to the Keys after a stint on mainland Florida. The party was hosted by Gary Dunn, Ocean View Inn owner, UM Sports Hall of Famer and two-time Super Bowl champion with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Fans and members of the public had the chance to meet some sports greats, including Jimmy Johnson, Spencer “Doc” Kellogg, K.C. Jones, J.D. Arteaga and Randal Hill. The fishing began June 22. The Coastal Ink Printing Team of anglers Tyler Webb, Kendra Paulson of Tavernier, Emalee Taylor of Clearwater and Alissa Keiler weighed in three fish totaling 52.4 pounds to secure the tournament win and a $7,000 check.
