If you love to fish and are looking for a challenge, tournament fishing is a great way to enjoy some friendly competition and meet like-minded anglers. We’re lucky in the Coastal Bend that tournaments happen all year. Whether you’re in it for the competition or to win prizes, you’re sure to have a good time!
No matter what type of fishing you enjoy, you’ll find annual tournaments and even progressive tournaments that take place over many months. Categories include boat-only, pier, bank, wading, and even kayaking, with some tournaments catering to more than one type of angler. You can often get the whole family involved, and there are plenty of women-only and kid-only events as well.
If you’re apprehensive about signing up for a tournament for the first time, head down to one and watch as the anglers bring in their catch. You’ll get to know some of the regulars and can ask questions and scope out the competition. Plus, the weigh-ins are fun to watch, especially since many records are set in the Coastal Bend!
Make sure to stick around after and enjoy some of the activities, entertainment, and food that go with most tournaments. You’ll also want to explore the vendor area to learn about the latest equipment, watch demonstrations, and purchase that item you’ve had your eye on.
