Encourage the youngest folks in your crew to foster and grow a love of fishing along the North Carolina coastline with this annual tournament that is designed with the area’s youngest anglers in mind. The Captain Charlie Kids Fishing Tournament is a fun and exciting fishing tournament that highlights the great catches of the fall, and which gives kids an opportunity to drop a line in the hopes of reeling in some great catches, and hopefully some great prizes too.
The Captain Charlie Kids Fishing Tournament is held in the fall when local fishing conditions are often at their peak, and it takes place at the Southport City Pier in the heart of downtown Southport. During the morning’s tournament, kids will be divided in several age appropriate groups for the competition, which includes a 5 & under category, a 6-8 category, a 9-12 category, and a 13-16 category. (A fishing license is not required per state law for all anglers under the age of 16.) Prizes change every year, but expect plenty of unique goodies on the docket as kids compete in a wide array of categories. Fun for all ages, the Captain Charlie Kids Fishing Tournament is a great way to celebrate an inherent love of fishing.
