After a 2 year hiatus, Old Salt is bringing the much loved Kids Fishing Slam. As in the past, the Slam will be held in conjunction with conjunction with the Spring King of the Beach King mackerel Fishing Tournament.
The Kids Fishing Slam is a labor of love for Old Salt and a unique experience for the kids and families that participate. Kids will fish the seawall at the tournament venue, Madeira Beach Recreation Complex and we will typically host between of 600-700 kids and their families. The kids each receive a rod/reel set then “fish/compete” with loads of experienced anglers (Old Salt volunteers) there to bait hooks offer advice and show these kids a fun time. The kids fish in 2 heats of about 1 hour each.
There is no charge to the families for this experience and prizes are awarded when the fishing has concluded. Afterwards, we follow up with live music for the families that choose to stay. Heck, this event was even picked as one of the best kids fishing tournaments in the country
Along with the volunteers, Old Salt sponsors & partners step up to ensure this is an experience like no other. 13 Fishing, Mastry Engine Center, Suzuki Repower, Aylesworth Fish & Bait, Fisherman’s Ideal Supply House and numerous others make this all come together.
The kids and their families have a great time and leave with some fine memories. Mark your calendars – Signup for the 2022 Kids Slam will start in early April, right here
