Annual Bastille Day Kingfish Tournament

This place to be this Sunday is Hull Bay Hideaway, for the Northside Sportfishing Club’s Annual Kingfish tournament.

Some details on this popular tournament:

More than 300 anglers – men, women, boys and girls of all skill levels – are expected to enter. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, entry fees are low at $45 for adults and $35 for juniors ages 8-16.

Long time Silver Sponsor, Offshore Marine, the Yamaha and Yanmar distributor in the Virgin Islands, will donate cash prizes: $1000 for Best Boat, $1000 for Best Captain, $500 for Third Largest Kingfish, $500 for Best Male Angler, $250 for Best Junior Male Angler and $250 for Best Female Junior Angler.

All registered anglers will receive an official Bastille Day T-shirt thanks to the combined sponsorship support of Coors Light and Bellows International Ltd, Offshore Marine and NEMWIL, as well as a goodie bag with goodies, thanks to Hawaiian Tropic.

New this year, everyone – either as an individual or as a group – is invited to enter the Scotiabank Sand Sculpture Contest. It’s free to enter. All you need to bring is your creativity. The theme will be nautical. Judging of the contest will take place at 2 p.m., and the winner will receive a trophy and bragging rights, and all participants will receive a ribbon.

Entry forms can be obtained from Bryan’s Electrical and Neptune Fishing Supplies. A captain’s meeting and registration will be held at 7:30 p.m. at Hull Bay Hideaway on Friday, July 9. Late Registration will also be held from noon until 7 p.m. on Saturday, July 10, at Hull Bay Hideaway. Fishing will start at 5:30 a.m. on Sunday July 11, and will end at noon, sharp.
