This Event Happens in: 

The annual classic headquarters and weigh-in dock is at St. Simons Island's Gascoigne Bluff Park on the Frederica River.

Usually attracting over 100 boats each year, one of the highlights is when the boats head out into the open ocean in the early morning.  These are big open boats with multiple massive outboards race out of the St. Simons Sound in the hunt for the popular gamefish.  The biggest fish takes the top prize, usually a boat, motor and trailer!

This spectator-friendly tournament allows onlookers on the dock as the boats come in for weigh-in.  Shaded seating is offered under the parks shaded pavilion along side onsite food concessions and a beer vendor.
