SATURDAY, AUGUST 12, 2017
Young anglers ages six through 15 are invited to compete in the free 15th Annual Young Angler Tournament this summer at the Shelter Island Pier, located at 1776 Shelter Island Drive on Saturday August 12th. This saltwater event is sponsored by the San Diego Sportfishing Council and the Port of San Diego. Awards are presented by the International Game Fish Association.
The tournament will feature a points system to allow for catch and release. Winners-one in each age category between 6 and 15 - will be determined by adding up points for various fish caught. The angler with the most points overall will be recognized on the tournaments’ perpetual trophy. IGFA representatives and volunteers from the United Pier and Shore Anglers Club, San Diego Rod & Reel and the San Diego Anglers will be on hand to assist young anglers and to tally points. Young anglers in the competition are encouraged to bring their own gear, although a limited number of loaner rods will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Small quantities of bait will be provided each angler while supplies last.
