Texas Champions
King Mackerel Tournament

Envisioned as an Old-School tournament where entry fees are low and only one fish matters, the Texas Champions King Mackerel Tournament will be held on June 18th and benefits one of our favorite charities: The Freeport to Port O'Connor Toy Run!

With two seperate classes ("Open" and "Class of 23"), the TCMKT is open to everyone and features a $100 per person entry fee and a $100 minimum bid calcutta.  First Place Winners in each class will take home prize money (50% of entry fees), with 2nd, 3rd and Junior winners receiving trophies.  The Calcutta will pay out 75% to the winners in each class. 

This is a charitable event and 100% of the non-payout proceeds will directly help children in need. In this tournament every angler is a "Champion For The Kids"!  Grab a copy of the rules and a registration form at the  tournament website, and sign up today!

The Surfside Shootout

Although it may sound like a new tournament, you actually already know it as the Texas Center Console Shootout. Now in its fourth year, the Shootout will be held at Surfside Marina this July 28-30 and offers cash prizes for the largest Tuna, Wahoo and Dorado.

Why did we change the name? Simple: the name "Center Console Shootout" made people think we only allowed center consoles. In reality, the tournament is open to similar style boats like walkarounds, cats, cuddies, etc. so it would be more aptly named the Center Console "Style" Shootout. We figured Surfside Shootout had a nicer ring to it, so we went with that.

Once again presented by Pelagic Gear and hosted by Surfside Marina, the Shootout targets three species: Tuna, Wahoo, and Dorado. Teams are awarded one point per pound and submit scores for their heaviest single fish per species caught during the tournament. A Gulf Slam Bonus is available for teams that weigh an eligible fish of each species, giving them an additional 100 points. At the end of the two (2) days of fishing, the team that has the most points totaled across all three species will be crowned the winner.

The entry fee is only $500 per boat, with optional jackpots to further increase the prize purse. The event kicks off with final registration and captain's meeting Thursday, July 28th from 5-8 p.m. Weigh scales are open both Friday and Saturday evening and prizes will be awarded shortly after the scales close on Saturday. 

Texas Billfish Classic

Get ready for the Texas Billfish Classic, coming to Surfside Marina August 17-20.
Growing on the success of last year's event, the TBC is making a new home at Surfside Marina, and we couldn't be more excited! With pre-parties scheduled on Tuesday and Wednesday, weigh-ins on Friday and Saturday, and a legendary Winner's Party on Saturday night, this will be the billfish tournament you don't want to miss.
Featuring separate Weighed and Release Billfish divisions, anglers can receive bonus points for weighing billfish 105 inches or longer. The tournament will also offer side pots for Tuna, Wahoo and Dolphin, so there's plenty of money at stake, too. Along with the addition of several new corporate sponsors, the TBC anticipates prize money exceeding $300,000! Most importantly, the tournament will continue to support to local charities and groups in need around our community.
