charlie johnson Posted March 11, 2011 Report Share Posted March 11, 2011 Maverick/ The Back Country Spring Fling We're at it again and going by the motto,"If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Just schedule it for when the fishing is even better." Let's see all the regulars from the past three events plus some new faces. Tournament and registration info is below. This is a casual, all release, fly fishing only tournament held in Vero Beach for redfish, snook and trout with a sheephead wildcard. ( Sheephead can be substituted for one of the three species.) The tournament is a â€œslamâ€ format where each species must be caught once before multiple catches of one species are counted. Following fishing, there will be an informal awards ceremony, burgers and raffle (tickets given based upon number of inches scored) next to the Riverside Park boat ramp. When: Saturday, April 2, 7:00 â€“ 3:30 pm (Short captainâ€™s meeting Friday evening 5:30 at The Backcountry) Where: Vero Beach Awards: Back Country gift certificates for largest of each individual species and overall Slam Champion (total payout net direct tournament expenses.) Raffle: Fly tackle from leading manufactures, buff headwear, gift certificates for MBC Skiffworld apparel and numerous other boat/ fishing related items. Entry Fee: $50 per team (2 anglers) For more details and to register go to: http://www.verobackcountry.com/tournament.php Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
