This year the tournament takes place on February 4 and, as everyone knows, February is giant Redfish month at the Lagoon. In fact, the giant Redfish, in the 50” range, are on the hunt. Catching these beasts will be quite a challenge on light tackle, but also promises to be a lot of fun.
The tournament is once again hosted by Goodrich Seafood & Oyster House, with 7:00 am being the launch time for kayaks. CPR weigh-in time will be at 2:30 pm at the host's location on the north end of the lagoon.
More information, along with a map, is available on the official tournament page. Tournament entry for the Mosquito Lagoon Classic is $55,00 and anglers can also purchase into the ClassicS Masters Calcutta. Last year, the first place prize went to a catch of 2 reds and 2 trouts with a combined total of 89”. It will be interesting to see what this year brings.
