Fishing Tournaments

Some anglers fish for the bragging rights, some for the money, but most anglers fish for the fun of it.

Fishing tournaments in Charlotte Harbor focus on tarpon (top) and redfish (second row).

Before the economic downturn it was not unusual to see 130 boats and almost 400 competitors in any one event.
