IFC Captain's Cup Sailfish Tournament
2021 IFC Captain's Cup Sailfish Tournament
Nestled in the fishing capital of the world, the IFC offers novice and expert fishermen alike a place to experience camaraderie like no other.
If you like fishing and care about the future of our fisheries and environment, you are bound to meet like-minded people from all walks of life brought together by their passion for fishing and conservation at the Islamorada Fishing Club.
September 19th is fast approaching for our annual closing for general maintenance. Our last dinner service will be Saturday, September 19th and we will reopen on Tuesday, October 6th for dinner and for lunch on Thursday, October 8th. For the time being we will continue serving lunch on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays only, until further notice.
The past seven months have been very challenging for the staff and I, and we continue to operate under the current mandated guidelines, for the protection of ourselves but most importantly for our membership. The good news is that The Club is going to come out on the other side unscathed and still healthy. Although our staff will be on vacation, I will available to you during the 2 weeks should you need anything or have any questions as you prepare for your return to Islamorada.
As we have said before the situation with Covid-19 is constantly changing. We are still at a mandated 50% occupancy for indoor seating with proper social distancing. Outdoor seating is also available with appropriate social distancing. We are allowing only those with a reservation to have a drink at the bar prior to going to their table to keep within the mandated guidelines of 50% occupancy.
Monroe County has issued a directive requiring face coverings to be worn outside whenever social distancing of six feet or more is not possible. Also, all employees and customers must wear a face coverings in all public establishments, the face coverings may be removed when seated, but must be worn if you leave your seat. I want to thank all of you for your cooperation and understanding as we navigate this very fluid environment.
The staff and I would like to thank our members for their continued support during these unprecedented times and our usual hot summer days.
Islamorada Fishing Club
We want to keep you informed on the protocols we are using at the club to keep all members and staff safe and healthy during these trying times we are all facing.
We are sanitizing all contact surfaces in the club daily and intermittently through the day including, dining room chairs, doors & bathroom fixtures. None of the tables are preset, silverware is rolled in dinner napkins and salt & pepper shakers are replaced with a sanitized set. There are numerous other changes that you may notice, such as no sugar caddies or cracker baskets or mints in a bowl at the front door. If you would like a mint please ask Marguerite I’m sure she will get one for you. There is hand sanitizer at the table near the host stand. All staff is wearing face coverings at all times.
We are continuing to have the club professionally sanitized through a fogging machine at a minimum of 2 times per month. In order for us to comply with the mandated State and local policies, we need all member’s cooperation as it applies to reservations and face coverings. Please arrive on time for your reservation and know that in some cases we may have to re-seat your table to allow other members access for dinner and to not exceed our 50% capacity. Please wear face coverings at all time with the exception of when you are seated.
Bar seating will be available for cocktails prior to moving to your table, so long as it does not exceed your reservation time. Again access and capacity. We hope you all know that we do all these things and will continue to do so for all of our protection and so that we may continue to serve you throughoutthese unprecedented times.
