The Beaufort Sportfishing and Diving Club is pleased to announce that the Year Round Annual Tournament is entering into its 11th year.  Beginning this month every angler who enters the tournament by weighing in an eligible species will be entered into a monthly drawing for a $50 prize. 


The host for the annual year round tournament is Port Royal Landing Marina, and will be sponsoring the 1st quarter’s prize money.  Each month the name of the angler will be recorded when the fish is weighed in at the Port Royal Landing Marina during working hours.  The following month, all of the names will be drawn out of the hat at the fishing clubs monthly meeting.  The winner will be notified before the next monthly meeting and requested to attend or send a representative.  However, if they so desire, their prize money can be donated to the Waddell Mariculture Center that the Beaufort Sportfishing and Diving Club supports each year for development and research for the local fisheries.  This new addition to the tournament will hopefully help increase participation while the focus still remains of promoting fishing opportunities in the Lowcountry.  


The year round fishing tournament is sponsored by Beaufort Sportfishing Diving Club and the Port Royal Landing Marina. Click here for the 2015 winners.
