Bay Baits, a locally owned and operated bait and excursions shop in Santa Rosa Beach, invites anglers of all ages to fish in the the fall Bay Baits Inshore Classic October 5th and 6th. “With the success of our other annual fishing tournament, the Bay Baits Benefit, we wanted to give the community another chance to come out and enjoy a great weekend of fishing in South Walton,” said Jacob Watkins, co-owner of Bay Baits. This tournament is set to offer prizes valued at over $3,000 dollars in cash. $1,000, $500, & $100 will be given to the first, second, and third place winners. Each angler, who can win in the Trout and Redfish first, second, and third place categories, will compete to see who can bring in the heaviest trout and/or redfish. Entry into the tournament is 45 dollars and anglers must pre-register through the Bay Baits Website. * Registration closes on October 5th at 6 a.m.
The competition begins on October 5th at 7:00 a.m. On Sunday, October 6th, the tournament will conclude with an after party at The Bay Restaurant from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. , with weigh-ins to be held between 5 p.m. & 6 p.m. The party is open and free to the public where we will have live music starting at 4 p.m. and an awards presentation at 6:30 p.m.! Bay Baits is looking forward to partnering with their title sponsors, Highway 98.1 and The Bay, to make this a unique, local tournament that anglers look forward to participating in.
