Fifth Annual Kid’s Fishing Tournament at Grayton Beach May 21, 2011
On Saturday, May 21, the South Walton Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association will sponsor the Fifth Annual Kid’s Fishing Tournament at Grayton Beach.
The tournament is intended to promote the responsible use of our marine resources through recreational fishing. With a $5 entry fee, each child receives a free rod and reel, full tackle box, beach rod holder, bait and pompano rigs and weights and a T-shirt.
“We could never succeed at hosting an event like this without the generosity and enthusiasm of our members and sponsors,” said chapter president Stafford Von Hoene. “Sponsors this year include The Red Bar, Yellowfin Ocean Sports, Ferguson Waterworks, Fish Florida, Luke and Blues, Costa Del Mar, Stinky’s Fish Camp and Liars Club Café.”
The event begins at 8 a.m. on the back porch of the Red Bar and ends at noon, followed by a brief award ceremony for the winners of each division.
Awards will be given to the winners of each of the following divisions:
Boys: 5 to 9 years | 10 to 12 years | 13 to 15 years
Girls: 5 to 9 years | 10 to 12 years | 13 to 15 years
All participants should be accompanied by an adult and Florida Recreational Saltwater Fishing Regulations shall apply. All fish must be alive at weigh-in. The heaviest fish weighed will determine the leader in each age group.
The Coastal Conservation Association of Florida has been sponsoring this child-oriented fishing event for five years in cooperation with the Red Bar, Yellowfin Ocean Sports, Fish Florida, Ferguson Waterworks and many other local businesses. The community event regularly attracts around 150 participants, not to mention another 100 or so parents, grandparent and guardians.
