Despite the set backs from Hurricane Harvey, Rockport is still holding many of its popular events such as the Babes on the Bay fishing tournament. Since 2000 this has been an exciting all women’s fishing event with awesome prizes. This year the tournament runs from May 18th-19th, and is held by the CCA Texas Aransas Bay Chapter.
There are 5 divisions: team with professional guide (any bait), team with professional guide (artificial bait), team with non-professional guide (any bait), team with none-professional guide (artificial bait), and a babe-ette junior division (16 and under). For the first four divisions there are prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th. For the junior division there is a prize for heaviest fish. There are also separate prizes for heaviest red, heaviest trout, and heaviest stringer for both the professional and non-professional and the artificial or non-artificial categories. For more information about prizes and to register go to http://www.babesonthebay.com/index.html.
