Ninth Annual Kid’s Fishing Tournament at Grayton Beach
On Saturday, May 10, the South Walton Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association will sponsor the Ninth 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 $15 entry fee, each child receives a tournament t-shirt, rod and reel, beach rod holder, bait and pompano rigs and weights.
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 nine 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.
