The 19th annual youth fishing tournament will be held on July 15, 2023. The C – Quarters Youth fishing tournament is a FREE event! Fishing hours 8:00am – 4:00pm, river and bay fishing only. Register at C- Quarters Marina 501 St. James Ave. Hwy 98, Carrabelle, FL. Last year, over 200 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 at 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 child 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 category. 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 weigh master available all day.
Lunch will be provided to the kids while the officials determine the tournament winners.
