Fishing Tournaments Return to the Avon Pier

PBRFishingTournament

The Avon Fishing Pier announces its first annual PBR Classic Red and Blue Fishing Tournament for November 7-9. In what pier manager Keith Matthews is calling “a sign of more good things to come”, the tournament will focus on Red Drum and Blue fish and cash prizes will be awarded for the top three winners in each category. Proceeds will go to the “T” fund to finish the T at the end of the pier.

Tournaments were a celebrated event at the pier in years past, but this year’s tournament is the first in five years and made possible by Koru Village’s purchase of the pier this February. The new pier property has a snack bar, tackle and bait shop and offers walk-on sightseeing for just $1.

For more information on the tournament and entry fees and to fill out an entry form, visit the Avon Fishing Pier website: AvonFishingPier.com.
