JR. ANGLER FISHING TOURNAMENT 2020
The Loxahatchee River District’s River Center, in partnership with Fishing Headquarters, is delighted to announce the 7th Annual Jr. Angler Fishing Tournament. Due to its high popularity last year with over 50 anglers, participation for this year’s tournament is expected to grow. Interested anglers should mark their calendars and set their reels for Saturday, June 27th when the contest officially opens.
Anglers will have until August 1st, 2020 to accumulate points in this unique catch-and-release tournament. By having the anglers photographed with the fish they catch and then submitted online. The contest is run over the course of several weeks instead of just a single day of competition. In addition, the contest awards points not only for the number of fish caught, but also for the number of different species represented in the submissions. The more fish you catch and the more species you catch, the better your chances are to win! These innovative guidelines encourage contestants to spend time throughout the summer exploring the diversity of habitats and fish species in our Palm Beach and Martin Counties.
The tournament is open to anyone between the ages of 5 and 17, but registration is required before submitted photographs can be awarded points. Winners will be virtually announced on Friday, August 7th.
