MarineMax series drops hook in Florida

The MarineMax Outboard Invitational Series comes to Pensacola, Fla., with a new family-friendly, outboard-only fishing tournament on Aug. 27, with a captain’s meeting the same day.

Divisions for the Pensacola tournament will include inshore (speckled trout and redfish) and offshore (mahi-mahi, wahoo, king mackerel, amberjack and grouper) plus an offshore kids division and a ladies division. Prizes will be $750 for first place, $500 for second place and $150 for third place; winners will also receive a plaque, one-year MarineMax Rewards Club membership and other local sponsor giveaways.

The entry fee for the tournament is $150 per boat up to three anglers, with $50 per each additional angler. Kids are free. (This becomes a $200 entry fee if registered on the day of tournament.) All entry fees will be donated to Fisher House, a unique private-public partnership that supports America’s military personnel in their time of need.
