TCA on the Bay Fishing Tournament

Thursday, August 8th, 6:00 am - 2:00 pm

Teams of three will fish aboard a Licensed Captains’ Vessel on the Lower Laguna Madre which offers some of the best year-round fishing.  Fishing the Lower Laguna Madre can limit out on Redfish, Speckled Trout or Flounder.  All Fishing vessels will come fully equipped with bait and tackle and offer a uniquely memorable experience for novice and experienced fisherman alike. Anglers will compete in two categories.  As a team, each boat will be judged on the weight of their total bag for the day.  Only legal sized fish will be counted and only specific species are eligible.  Individuals will fish for the ultimate trophy fish as well as the ultimate bragging rights as they face off against all other anglers for the “Catch of the Day!”  Don’t let this opportunity be the one that got away, snag your boat today!
