Calling all anglers!
Join the River Center and the AustinBlu Foundation for the annual AustinBlu Fishing tournament on Saturday, June 26th. This family-friendly tournament aims to support the education and outreach efforts of the foundation, which is dedicated to teach people about the importance of safety on the water.
This unique tournament will showcase not just one competition, but two! Anglers will have the option to compete in our Release Competition and/or the Harvest Competition.

In the Harvest Competition, anglers will compete to catch the heaviest fish out of these 4 categories:
- Crevalle Jack
- Snapper (any species)

Fishing will commence at 7:00 am and with lines out of the water at 3:00 p.m. Anglers will have until 4:00 pm to submit and weigh their catches. The tournament celebration will begin at 5:00 pm. Participants can enjoy food and beverages from local eateries Food Shack, Smac Shack, and Kona Ice as well as partake in knot tying, de-hooking activities and mangrove plantings in partnership with Mang Gear!
