Test your skill at catching different species of fish in this unique fishing tournament that takes place over restored oyster reefs on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Unlike most fishing tournaments where the winner catches the biggest fish, this one is all about catching the most different types of fish.
Restored oyster reefs provide habitat for rockfish, white perch, toadfish, croaker, spot, and other species. Participants in this tournament on Sept. 21 will try to catch as many different species as possible, ties will be broken based on fish size. The catch-and-release tournament uses the iAngler app so participants can take photos of their catches before they are released.
There will be categories for youth, kayak, and boat anglers as well as prizes awarded in each category. Entry is $40 for an individual and $120 per boat. Permitted fishing locations include the Tilghman Island reef, Clint Waters Reef at Cooks Point, Harris Creek, and the Tred Avon and Little Choptank oyster sanctuaries.
An after party will take place at Lowes Wharf Marina Inn - 21651 Lowes Wharf Road, Sherwood.
