The Mike Alstott Family Foundation has teamed up with Thunder Marine and the Old Salt Fishing Foundation to hold the first annual Mike Alstott Family Fishing Tournament July 31 and August 2.
The Mike Alstott Family Fishing Tournament will feature a Rodeo Style format, a first of its kind in the area. This unique and rare multiple specie points style event was created to give an equal playing field to all participants. Points are awarded per specie and per pound or inches of fish. Only two of the same specie can be weighed and a total aggregate of six fish will determine the winning teams. There will be both in-shore and off-shore divisions. In addition, the tournament will feature Youth, Ladies and Family divisions, an Ugliest Fish Contest, and a Best Family Team Contest.
The Old Salt Fishing Foundation strives to support family interaction and camaraderie through sport fishing for recreation, science, conservation and education. Ultimately they focus on community service efforts and to provide financial support to various local nonprofit organizations.
