Gulf Coast Kayak Fishing Club is sponsoring a kayak fishing tournament  Aug. 1  with a rain day of August 2nd. Entry Fee $20 (plus $1 PayPal fee)
Weigh in will be at the Crab Island Helen Back Pontoon boat. (Look for the banners). The boat will be anchored at Crab Island.  Crab Island is located just north of the Destin Bridge. Park at the beach access under the bridge and launch your kayaks from there. (Yes, weigh in is ON the water so drag the catches out there for all to see) Weigh in will be from 1-3pm. Lines in the water at 5:30 a.m.

This is a simple cash-in, cash-out tournament. Any entry money is paid right back out. There will be no prizes. This will be a bragging rights event only with a little wager on the side.

There will be a captain’s meeting at Helen Back Cafe on Okaloosa Island at 6:30pm Friday night. Captain’s meeting is NOT mandatory, but it’s good a get together before the tournament.
