It's tourney time again! Once again, the KARS staff and I will host a kayak, canoe, and SUP tournament. KARS Park, located on the pristine waters of the No Motor Zone in the Merritt Island National Refuge on East Central Florida's Space Coast is perhaps one of Florida's greatest treasures for inshore anglers. 

Although the tournament will be based out of KARS Park, anglers will have the option of fishing the Indian/Banana Rivers as well as the nearby waters of the Mosquito Lagoon. We will hold our Captain's Meeting at 7:00pm on Friday, June 20 with the tournament on Saturday, June 21 with a 6:30am launch.

Along with cash payouts for top-placing anglers, we have outstanding sponsors lined up providing great prizes for winning anglers, as well as a "Youth Angler" category. The tournament will be CPR (catch-photo-release) in which anglers will be permitted to check in their two highest-scoring aggregate length redfish. There will be an additional $10 buy-in Calcutta prize for most spots on a single fish.

This will be one not to miss! Hope to see some familiar faces and meet some new folks as well! For more info and to register, please contact Kristina Bumgarner at the KARS Park Store at 321-867-7967

*Campsites at the park are also available on a first-come first-served basis.
