Location and Dates: Wilmington, NC and surrounding areas
Tournament Description: The CCA NC Cape Fear Chapter is proud to bring to Wilmington an inshore tournament that allows for the “weekend Warriors” and the dedicated fisherman alike ,an opportunity to get out on the water and enjoy the resources that our state has to offer. Thanks to the iAngler phone app we are no longer limited to single day tournaments and weigh in stations. We are excited about this new era of catch , photo and release tournaments, allowing you to find the time to get out and catch some fish!
Who: Although our Cape Fear Chapter is hosting the event, anglers are welcome to enter and participate in any coastal waters that they choose so long as tournament rules and proper photo submission requirements are followed.
The Inshore Open is open to anglers of all ages and skill levels and is designed to be an annual event for CCA members and non-members alike to get out on the water for some fun in support of CCA North Carolina and its message of conservation. Through this tournament we are proud to showcase our Release Over 20″ campaign along with RELEASENSE, our catch and release best practices awareness program.
Prizes: We will be awarding $1000’s in prizes to a variety of winners based on performance as well as through random drawings just for entering the tournament.
Cost: This event is not designed to raise money but instead is simply an effort to give everyone an added excuse to hit the coast and get out on the water to enjoy our resource. Our only goal is to cover our costs so we have set registration fees as low as possible in order to make it inexpensive for anyone to participate.
