Backcountry Fishing Association
Is pleased to announce a year round flats fishing tournament in Fort Pierce, Florida.
We want to hold a monthly tournament that is affordable for the average angler. Some of our goals in the future are to have raffles and prizes for anglers. We are going to have twelve tournaments a year, including a classic in December. Were basing the classic on number of tournaments fished throughout the year, giving the anglers something to work for and look forward too. Also each tournament has a cash payout based on the amount of anglers that enter. Another cool thing were going to start is a prize for team of the year. The team of the year will be determined by the amount of points earned throughout the year. The prizes will consist of cash, fishing gear or both. One of the best parts of the association is its artificial only and puts everyone on a level playing field.
How It Works
We will be holding a monthly tournament the first Saturday of every month. The teams with 6 out of 11 tournaments or more fished will be in the classic. There will also be a cash payout per tournament in addition to points. The points will show overall standings and give us a team of the year. All tournaments will be artificial ONLY. The species that will be fished for will be determined at each captains meeting, based on what is in season. All tournaments will be based on a combined weight of fish. Captains meeting will be held at Zelmo’s every Friday evening at 6pm before tournament day. Weigh in will be held at Taylor Creek Marina. First tournament will be held on August 3rd. You will be able to sign up and pay at captains meeting. Please pay with cash only and call in advance for boat number. Thanks
