Hollywood Kids Fishing Tournament
September 21, 2023
The City of Hollywood Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts is hosting the second annual Kids Fishing Tournament on October 21st from 7:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. We’re taking this year’s tournament offshore to provide a unique, hands-on experience for kids aged 10 through 17 who reside in the City of Hollywood.
The day begins at the charter vessel located at Lady Pamela Marina at 7:30 a.m. Participants will sign in and attend a 30-minute fishing clinic conducted by the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) and local marine experts. Immediately following the clinic, participants will board the 65-foot charter vessel and offshore fish along the coral reefs of Hollywood and the Florida coast for approximately three hours. Parents are not permitted on the vessel during the fishing tournament.
During the outbound trip, the crew will conduct safety training and teach participants resource stewardship, including ethical fishing skills and ways to protect Florida's aquatic environments within our community.
Snacks, water, and lunch will be provided throughout the trip. Each participant will take home their own rod and reel. Awards will be given to anglers in the following categories: Largest Fish, Smallest Fish, Most Unusual Fish, Most Fish, and more.
The registration fee is $20 and scholarships available based on household income.
Location: Lady Pamela Marina, 5400 North Ocean Drive in Hollywood
