$12,000 Raised for KeepAmerica Fishing™ Foundation

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (July 10, 2018) – The Lew’s Fishing-sponsored trio of Peter Thliveros, John Carman and Matthew Mattingly, and the trio of Tomas Gomez, Billy Benedetti and Cesar Jaimes both brought a five-bass limit to the scale Tuesday morning weighing 22 pounds, 2 ounces to tie for the win at the fourth annual ICAST Cup presented by FLW bass-fishing tournament on Lake Toho. 

The event marked the kickoff of ICAST 2018, the largest sportfishing trade show in the world, taking place in Orlando this week. The tournament launched out of Big Toho Marina in Kissimmee, Florida, and featured a field of 55 teams competing for bragging rights and to raise money for the KeepAmericaFishing™ foundation. Each company that sponsored a boat donated a minimum $200 entry fee to the foundation in order to compete. After the final fish had been weighed Tuesday, a total of $12,000 was raised for the KeepAmericaFishing™ foundation.

“Who would have thought that we’d come out here in 3½ hours and catch that quality of fish?” said Thliveros, a former FLW Tour Angler of the Year and seven-time Forrest Wood Cup qualifier. “I certainly didn’t, but thank god I had partners that could. These guys took command today and all I did was drive the boat and dip the net. It was an awesome day.”

“To be crowned the first ICAST Cup co-champion is pretty great,” said Gomez, a local tournament angler from Kissimmee, Florida and owner of “It’s an honor to compete against the caliber of fisherman that were in this event and it’s great to be a part of the genuine camaraderie and sportsmanship that everyone shows to each other in this sport.”
