The 2016 Old Salt Spring King of the Beach Kingfish Tournament running April 28 – 30, 2016 in Madeira Beach, Florida will host fishing teams from Texas, around the Gulf and up the Atlantic coast, to Virginia. Anglers will be competing for the King of the Beach crown and the guaranteed $50,000 first place payout. The tournament is wrapped up in a fun filled, three day waterfront festival offering traveling anglers, local families and residents three days of activities, music, food and events.
“The King of the Beach Tournament has offered a competitive angling experience and helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity and programs the past 24 years. The increased prize packages will draw even more competitive anglers from across the southeast U.S. More anglers means more money for our charities and programs. It’s a win all the way around.” Tom Verdensky, President – Old Salt Fishing Foundation.
Proceeds from the 3-day tournament and waterfront festival help Old Salt Fishing Foundation fund family & youth fishing programs, provide financial support for select charities and deliver effective advocacy for licensed Florida anglers.
