Jamaica Bay Kayak Fishing Tournament May 5th and 6th


The Fourth Annual Jamaica Bay Kayak Fishing Tournament will be held on Sunday, May 6th, 2007. Last year's tournament was a great success. Not only did the event raise money for a worthy charity, but 202 kayak anglers enjoyed great fishing with hundreds of fish caught and released. The three targeted species - bluefish, striped bass and weakfish - all made an appearance. More than 60 people attended the kayak fishing demo and learned about this great sport. This year will be a 2 day event with the Saturday being the pre-fishing day and also a free fishing kayak demo. The Saturday will also be a chance for meeting others as well as going fishing to prepare for the tournament. There will be a Captain's meeting Saturday evening(location to be named later). Sunday will be the actual tournament as well as a chance for people to try out all the best fishing kayaks. ESPN Outdoors covered the event for Bass Center and we are hoping for similar media coverage this year.

Not a grouper. It's a Red Drum, commonly known as Redfish.
