South Padre Island Fishing: Fishing for the Ladies
The Ladies Kingfish Tournament gives women the opportunity to put their fishing skills on display and win awards and prizes for doing so. This year’s tournament serves a number of purposes which include showcasing South Padre Island as a fishing destination as well as homing in on the unique niche of fishing enthusiasts that includes women. The sport of fishing has always been very male dominated. However, with tournaments such as these, women get an opportunity to showcase their fishing expertise and skill. This is the first South Padre Island fishing tournament of its type that gives women the opportunity to display their skill and love for the sport of fishing.
Display Your Competitive Spirit
Those women interested in participating in the tournament can register online or onsite the day of the event at the SPI Convention Centre. This three-day event consists of two divisions, bay and offshore. Participants in each division will compete for trophies in different fish categories such as trout and flounder for the Bay division and dolphin and bonito for the offshore division. The official weigh-in for catches will be at SouthPoint Marina at Port Isabel followed by an awards ceremony at the SPI Convention Centre. Awards and trophies will be given for the first four spots.
A Tournament for a Good Cause
The Ladies Kingfish Tournament not only allows women to have time in the sun with competitive sport fishing but also supports other endeavors throughout South Padre Island.
