La Familia: Open Fishing for the family!
Our event is family oriented, full of fun, and open to anyone wishing to participate. The idea of a family fishing tournament began a year ago when several anglers thought it would be fun to have a competition among themselves and their families’ out at the beach just “going fishing”.
Our mission is to serve our members and community through proactive involvement in family oriented activities.
The tournament starts with early registration on Saturday June 6, 2015 at 5:00am, and wraps up with a prize ceremony for the 1st place winners at the Main Tent at 3:00pm. Early tickets will be sold for $10 per person (adult/child). Tickets at event will be $15. The tournament site will only consist of the main entrance to the right of Boca Chica Beach surf area including up to the mouth of the Rio Grande River. NO JETTIES.
Grand Prizes will consist of the following categories: 1st Place Male $700 – 1st Place Female $700 – 1st Place Child Male $300 – 1st Place Child Female $300 child ages are 14 years and under. Participating species are the following: Red Drum, Black Drum, Trout Spotted, and Sheephead -Measured Length Size Only!
