    Tournaments & Events

    From Backwater to Bluewater, We’ve Got You Covered.

    New Smyrna Beach, Port Orange, Edgewater, and Oak Hill are home to several fishing tournaments held throughout the year. If you are looking for a good fishing spot to drop your line, in 2018, Volusia County sunk 2 ships to form artificial reefs that are now some of the best bottom fishing and diving spots around. The area produces sizable catches of triggerfish, snapper, grouper, and lobster.

    Fishing tournaments offer more than just the opportunity to fish, but an opportunity for fun for the whole family. So, bring everyone along and participate in one (or more!) of the following:

    The Big Game Tournament
    Halifax Sport Fishing Club
    IFA Redfish Tour
    King of the Inlet
    Queen of the Inlet
    Lady Angler


    The Big Game Tournament

    The Big Game Tournament is a newer annual tournament inspired by the Striking Fishing Tournament, one of the East Coast’s longest-running big-game fish tournaments. This event held this year, 2023, from May 22nd thru May 31st includes the following species: Blue Marlin Billfish Release Wahoo Dolphin King Mackerel Tuna



    Halifax Sport Fishing Club

    The Halifax Sport Fishing Club has a long history of involvement in community service projects such as the construction of wheelchair-accessible docks at local boat ramps, free fishing contests, and picnics for physically or economically challenged children and adults, fishing outings for the elderly, and more!

    IFA Redfish Tour

    The Inshore Fishing Association has a tournament series in the place where inshore anglers can fish for Redfish in a professional format. The idea, formulated from a love of fishing, continues to grow and provide inshore anglers an opportunity to display their talents on the intercoastal waterways.
    Tournaments include:
    Redfish Tour Titusville Kayak
    Fishing Tour Titusville



    King of the Inlet

    King of the Inlet is three tournaments, and the grand prize is based off the most points accumulated from these three tournaments. These tournaments can be fished as a one-time tournament entry, or you can fish all three for the chance at the title “King of the Inlet”. 2023 fishing dates are May 1 - 31 and awards are handed out June 7.

    Fisherwomen get their chance to shine too in their very own Queen of the Inlet Offshore Fishing Tournament taking place May 27, 2023.
