Tournament Director Kip Froud commented “we are very fortunate to have a great group of sponsors for the Junior Fishing Tournament. We want to hold an event where kids from right across Bermuda can participate and enjoy time with their friends and family members. It’s also a great chance to communicate the importance of stewardship of our marine resources to Bermuda’s junior anglers. In previous years parents and guardians have gone to great lengths to ensure their children were able to participate. Some families caught buses from St Georges and Dockyard to Hamilton and then walked to the weigh in just so their junior angler could be part of the proceedings.”

The spokesperson said, “Each tournament Bermuda’s young anglers land a wide of variety of species from wahoo and tuna to snapper, bream and jacks. The event is a fantastic opportunity for kids, parents and guardians from all parts of our community to mix with one another in a relaxed and fun-filled atmosphere.”

Froud noted, “We very much appreciate the support we have received from H&H Plumbing & Mechanical Ltd for the prize for the child winning the offshore category. C-Mart, Marine Locker and Butterfield & Vallis have also got behind this important event on the Island’s fishing calendar.”

The spokesperson said, “Over 100 kids from across the Island are expected to participate and interest in this event is proving to be strong with most participants now entering online. The youngest participant registered so far is the tender age of two.

“Participants can either enter online by visiting here, or by completing a downloadable entry form and emailing it back to the Club.”
