Bay Bash Family Fishing Tourney is Aug. 11

The 3rd Annual Bay Bash Family Fishing Tournament and benefit concert will be held August 11 at Ingram Bay Marina in Wicomico Church.

This is a full-day event featuring a multi-species fishing tournament followed by a benefit concert featuring the “Tom Euler Band.” Other attractions include food, beverages, raffle and moon bounce for the kids.

This event provides a means to help children with special needs of the Northern Neck through participation in the tournament and through the benefit concert by raising money to help meet financial needs of local families. Individuals and local businesses interested in donating time or resources for this great cause can contact Mary Pipkin at 580-7292.

The tournament offers cash prizes for 10 different species of fish as well as a grand prize, sponsored by Seigler reels, for the angler with the longest total inches of all their species. There is also a Special Anglers, Youth and Ladies divisions.

The event will be officiated by the Northern Neck branch of Fish Dispatch, providing cutting edge technology with a live online leaderboard throughout the tournament with up-to-the-minute results.

Entry fees are: power boats $75, canoe/kayak $30, and pier or shore anglers $15. Last year, anglers in all three types of entries won prizes. “In terms of diversity of species I believe this tournament is the largest in the Mid-Atlantic region, and certainly the most inclusive on the Chesapeake Bay,” said Capt. Billy Pipkin of Ingram Bay Marina.  

When Capt. Pipkin organized the event, the idea was to develop a tournament that would be family friendly and put any angler on equal footing with the big boys fishing from sophisticated sports fishing boats.
