Put some new line on your reels and scout out your secret fishing holes, because November 3rd is the 16th Annual McClellanville Creek Tournament. The event is sponsored by Archibald Rutledge Academy and 50% of all the proceeds go to supporting the school. The rest is up for grabs for the contestants, with 25% going to 1st place, 15% to 2nd, and 10% to 3rd place.
Points are given to fishermen with the biggest legal bass, trout, and flounder and bonus points are given to boats that catch all three. As always there will be some great door prizes so even if you get skunked, you still have a chance of going home with something great. Boats with a child of 15 and under also qualify to win the Youth Angler Award.
This is a rain or shine event that starts at 7 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. at the McClellanville Boat Landing. You can find out all the rules and get an entry form at ARAs website. Local businesses wanting to sponsor the event and have their name on the t-shirt or posters can also find a form on the their website.
