Just wanted to let you guys know about a tournament you may be interested in... mostly because it is a microskiff friendly tournament... Location: Pineland, FL (Pine Island) at The Tarpon Lodge Cost: $150 per angler (kayakers welcome) Prize money: $11,000 in cash payouts Date: August 2nd. This is a one day redfish tournament making it family friendly. Two heaviest slot size redfish win. Fish must be weighed in (weigh station open all day) The location of this tournament is what makes it so great. You can litterally wade out from the weigh station and start looking for tailers. Islands that hold redfish schools are about 500 yards from the weigh in. Visit the web site for more info: www.summershootout.org I know I am new to the forum. But, since joining, I have bought a boat from Capt. Jan and sold my old gheenoe. I hope to meet some of you guys at the touney.
