Old Salt Kids Fishing Slam Makes “Best Of” List

Old Salt Kids Fishing Slam Makes “Best Of” List

The good folk at fishingbooker.com surveyed kids fishing tournaments across the U.S. to assemble a best of the best list (Best Kids Fishing Tournaments In The U.S.) and the 2019 Old Salt Kids Fishing Slam was identified and found worthy.  Thanks Fishing Booker!

Recognition is nice. Seriously, it is very nice. Old Salt is honored to be recognized and held in the same regard as the other organizations that made the list. So, it is nice. Now, putting rods, reels and bait in thousands of kids hands over the years and getting them fishing…. well, that’s even better still.

Of the many events Old Salt undertakes annually, it is the youth and family fishing events and tournaments that top the list of most meaningful. Ask any ten Old Salt members what drew them to the organization and at least half of them will tell you it is the work we do to get kids and their families fishing.

We are closing out this year with the Kids Seawall Fishing Tournament, put on in conjunction with the Suncoast Kingfish Classic Fishing Tournament and our annual Very Special Kids Fishing Day for special needs children and their families.

Check out the work Old Salt does with kids and families and, if you are moved, volunteer for one, come to a monthly meeting and see what we are about, donate of share our journey in your social media accounts.
