There is an all new “Fernandina Beach Fishing Rodeo” presented by the Nassau Sport Fishing Association. What used to be known as the “Nassau Sport Fishing Association Tournament of Champions, is still an SKA sanctioned kingfish tournament that now targets a variety of deep sea and backwater game fish.
New dates bring this exciting, family oriented fishing event to Fernandina Beach August 5-7, 2011; with only one day of competition. The August dates were picked for this all new Fernandina Beach Fishing Rodeo when fishing for a variety of game fish is best!
Deep sea species for the rodeo portion of the event include amberjack, dolphin, grouper, wahoo and cobia. Backwater species include redfish, sea trout, flounder, sheepshead and the redfish with the most “Spots!”
The “Captain’s” meeting is scheduled for Friday evening at the Fernandina Harbor Marina where “Sounds on Centre” offers entertainment following the “Captain’s” meeting, with live music and dancing in the street from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.
