Hockaday in 1933,  Now entering its 75th event, TIFT offers the best of bay and offshore fishing to enthusiasts of all ages. Scheduled to be held July 30-Aug. 3, 2014, TIFT is expected to attract as many as 1500 anglers and more than 500 boats during its two days of fishing activities.Fisherman young and old will compete in one of three divisions: bay, tarpon and offshore. Dockside, more than 10,000 spectators will turn out to view impressive catches of blue marlin, white marlin and sailfish brought in by the big boats offshore. Bay anglers will be weighing in mouthwatering catches of speckled trout, redfish and flounder during the two days of fishing. One of the most rewarding sights at the weigh docks are the junior anglers weighing in their stringers of catches that range from a single small piggy perch to impressive catches that adult anglers will envy. Every child registered in the tournament is awarded a trophy for their effort.

Andy Hancock with Penguin Plunge Raffle Winner
Andy Hancock with Raffle Winner
The 1st Annual Penguin Plunge was held on January 1, 2013 at Boomerang Billy’s Beach Bar.
The International Idiots Club joined with Andy Hancock, who is a master at sand sculpturing, for a brand new tradition to ‘wing in the New Year’! Several hundred people showed up to take a dip in the chilly waters of the Gulf in celebration.
Besides the encounter with cold waves, there was music by Leslie Blasing, FREE sand castle lessons and a raffle for a wooden Penguin, which Andy carved on the beach in front of a crowd that gathered at Boomies. All of the proceeds from the event will benefit the treatment of Hydrocephalus, a medical condition in which there is an abnormal accumulation of fluid on the brain.
Because of the successful turnout of this  plans are being made to make it an annual event.
