We are happy to announce the 14th Annual Kingfish Shootout to be held on August 5th & 6th, 2017 with the Captain's Meeting at C-Quarters Marina the night of August 4th. The Shootout will be for kingfish and spanish mackerel.

Prizes will be given for Youth Angler (16 years or younger) and Lady Angler for the biggest fish in addition to prize money, if qualified. Youth and Lady Angler must catch their fish unassisted. The guaranteed payout for Spanish Mackerel will be $3,500. 1st place is $2,000, 2nd place is $1,000, 3rd place is $500. Teams can enter both categories but only win in one category. Highest place wins. Make sure to weigh in your biggest fish. Boat Registration Fee is $300 per boat.
With continuing thoughts of Lisa Crowder Jackson, we are excited about the potential positive impact this event is going to have not only for the charity, the Leukemia Research Foundation, but the City of Carrabelle and Franklin County as a whole.
Thank you to all our previous sponsors and fishermen. We hope to see you the first weekend in August with the catch of a lifetime, winning the $5,000 for the 1st place kingfish or $3,000 for the 1st place spanish mackerel.
