Greater Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament to celebrate 40th anniversary


Jacksonville Marine Charities, Inc., host of the Greater Jacksonville Kingfish Tournament, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and organizers will also be celebrating its past champions with two new tournaments.

One tournament will be for past champions, by invitation, for $100. The payout will be winner take all. There will also be a high entry fee tournament, for High Rollers, for $1,000. This tournament will have a high payout: three places, large fish, with the winner taking home $10,000 cash plus a Rolex watch. The High Rollers bash is limited to 40 entries. There will also be calcuttas for both tournaments. These new tournaments will be fished July 13, with a captain’s meeting and sit-down dinner, off site, on July 12. Every registered captain will receive a gift at the meeting.

The new events will continue to support the important work done by Jacksonville Marine Charities, Inc.
