    Yellowfin, I love that you guys are sponsoring this event! The event is almost crazily-unbelievable. Free registration, and first 250 registrants receive all the fishing stuff they need to get in business. I didn't make it to last year's event, but I saw many happy kids after the event ended.

    Remember to pack the sunblock, or go over to Yellowfin and see about buying a wide-brim fishing hat to help protect you from the sun.

    What time does the event start and where do kids register? Can they register online in advance, or do they just show up early?

    Woops. I thought that I included the official flyer. The event is from 8am to Noon, Saturday May 9th. Registration is the day of the event. Ollie at the Red Bar is graciously allowing us to again use the back porch area of the Red Bar for the registration area.

    I'm breaking Daddy-O's rules here because I also posted this under the "events" section but it got no response. For the sake of the kids, I beg forgiveness.

    Kids Fishing Tournament at Grayton Beach May 9

    One of last year's contestants Trey Wainwright and FWC Officer Rockwell.

    Kids compete for fishing bragging rights!


    The third annual CCA Kids Fishing Tournament will be held at 8 a.m. – noon on Saturday, May 9 at Grayton Beach.
    Sponsored by the South Walton Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association, this popular tournament is for boys and girls age 15 and under. The first 250 kids will be given their own rod and reel combo, donated from the proceeds of the “Fish Florida” specialty license tags.
    The tournament will be separated into three age group divisions:
    Boys: 5 years – 9 years
    10 years – 12 years
    13 years – 15 years
    Girls: 5 years – 9 years
    10 years – 12 years
    13 years – 15 years
    Tournament rules:
    All participants shall be accompanied by an adult.
    All Florida Recreational Saltwater Fishing Regulations shall apply.
    All fish shall be alive at weigh-in.
    Heaviest fish weighed shall determine leader in each age group.
    You kill it, you eat it!
    Bonus raffle:
    All accompanying adults who register for a CCA Membership ($25.00) during tournament registration will automatically be entered into a raffle to win a ˝ day offshore fishing trip redeemable that same day (limited to 3 kids and 1 adult).
    Check-in will be at The Red Bar, located at 70 Hotz Avenue in Grayton Beach.
    Yellowfin Ocean Sports in Seagrove will be supplying the bait and tackle, The Ship’s Chandler is sponsoring the weigh-in station, and Ferguson Waterworks will be supplying the PVC rod holders and leader board. Florida Fish and Wildlife will be dropping by for a demonstration of one of their boats.
    The CCA is an angler advocacy group dedicated to conserving and protecting Florida’s marine fishery resources. The local South Walton chapter is lead by Santa Rosa Beach resident, Neill O’Connell.

    What a grayt event. My five year old granddaughter and two year old grandson had a super morning at the beach.

    Granddaughter tried fishing--the waves were a bit strong for her; she loves that she got a "real" fishing pole, though.


    Thanks everyone for such a wonderful event.
