This month, we’re a proud sponsor of the 2022 Gulf Coast Masters taking place in Orange Beach, Alabama May 23rd-29th, run by tournament director Robbie Carter and his awesome team!
This year, the tournament is also part of the recently formed “Sport Fishing Championship” (SFC), and will be the very first tournament of the series televised live on CBS Sports.
“This is a historic day for championship fishing,” said Mark Neifeld, CEO & Commissioner of the Sport Fishing Championship. “Teaming up with CBS Sports to televise competitive saltwater angling will be the catalyst that elevates the sport to new heights.”
The Sport Fishing Championship was launched in an effort to showcase the sport of offshore fishing, positively impact the local economies of our championship towns and continuously improve our championship tournaments around a championship competition.
The SFC offers a 12-event competition series that awards one grand champion in the sport of offshore fishing, beginning in April 2022 with the Louisiana Gulf Coast Billfish Classic and continuing through the final tour stop at the San Juan International Billfish Tournament in Puerto Rico. Teams earn points based on their placement in each qualifying tournament, plus are awarded additional points for every qualified catch throughout the season. The SFC awards four winners based on results from the 12-tournament regular season, which features three “championship fish” competitions and a points-based catch-and-release billfish championship.
This coming week should be an action packed “good ‘ol time” in Alabama. To meet about Release Boatworks builds in person at the tournament, email Lacey@ReleaseBoatworks.com We look forward to seeing you there!
