Jr. Angler Fishing Tournament 2024

The Loxahatchee River District’s River Center, in partnership with Fishing Headquarters, is delighted to announce the 11th Annual Jr. Angler Fishing Tournament. Due to its high popularity,  participation for this year’s tournament is expected to grow.  Interested anglers should mark their calendars and set their reels for Saturday, June 29th when the contest officially opens.

Anglers will have until July 28, 2024 to accumulate points in this unique catch-and-release tournament. Anglers provide a photo of themselves with the fish they catch and then submit it through an app. The contest runs over the course of four 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 diverse habitats and fish species in 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.

If you cannot make the meeting an instructional video will be made available on YouTube and emailed to registered participants.
