Anglers in Flagler, Volusia and St. Johns counties are well aware of the extraordinary fishing available to them in the Intracoastal Waterway and the seemingly endless nearby flats. With the ever-increasing popularity and functionality of kayaks and their ability to get into these shallow waters, the Flagler Sportfishing Club in Palm Coast, FL is holding its first annual Kayak Fishing Tournament on Saturday, May 11.

Fishing will begin at 7 a.m., and the weigh-in is from 3-5 p.m. at Bing’s Landing County Park, 5862 N. Oceanshore Blvd (A1A), Palm Coast, FL 32137. The tournament is open to the public, and anglers may launch from anywhere along the Intracoastal in the three counties mentioned above.

For those that want to participate but do not have a kayak or a canoe, rentals are available at Genung’s Fish Camp, Tomoka, Faver Dykes, and Gamble Rogers state parks, as well as Princess Place County (Flagler) Park. They are also available at the Palm Coast Marina.

Entry fees: Free to club members, and $5 for food served at the weigh-in. For non-members, there is a $10 charge for food only, a $20 charge to fish only, or a $25 fee to fish and for food. There will be cash prizes, giveaways from vendors, and a 50-50 raffle. The menu alone is worth the price of admission. A meal ticket is good for one pulled pork sandwich, one side, and a drink from Captain’s Barbecue at Bing’s Landing.

Cash prizes, based on a minimum of 50 anglers: redfish, black drum, spotted sea trout, and flounder - First Place for each species $100, Second Place $50. There will be a $100 payout for the largest “other” fish from the club year-long tournament species list.
