12th Annual Youth Fishing Tournament
Date: July 16th, 2016
Open to all kids 16 years and younger!
Last year, over 150 kids fished the tournament with some traveling as far away as Louisiana. This year we expect even more to join the fun and fishing activities. Friday evening, prior to Saturday's fishing day, all entries in the tournament must attend a Fishing Clinic taught by the Dock Master of C-Quarters Marina, Millard Collins. They are instructed how to tie knots, tie on hooks, and overall safety while fishing. At completion of the clinic, each one receives a rod and reel, a tee shirt, hat, and bait. Rod and reels are furnished by FishFloridatag.org.
There are nine categories of fish with three places in each catagory. There will be trophies awarded for each category. On Saturday morning, the kids can fish from docks or, if they can go out on a boat, they are allowed to fish the Carrabelle River up to Dog Island. There will be a weighmaster available all day.
Lunch will be provided to the kids (Hot dogs, baked beans, chips and cokes) while the officials determine the tournament winners.
All participants must be registered prior to the tournament.
