Share a love of fishing with the youngest members in your vacationing party with this special fishing tournament that’s designed with youth anglers in mind. The Fritz Boyden Memorial Youth Tournament is an annual fishing tournament that takes place on the famous Jennette’s Pier, and which is open to all anglers ages 16 and under. The age groups for competitors are 4-9 years old and 10-16 years old, and trophies as well as rod and reel combos are awarded to the largest fish caught by a girl and boy angler for the day. Participants in the “catch and release” tournament can enjoy a full morning of fishing before going to a celebratory and awards lunch close to the pier.

The Fritz Boyden Memorial Youth Tournament is free to all kids, (which includes free access to Jennette’s Pier), and adults accompanying their young anglers only have to pay a sightseeing fee. There will also be door prizes, T-shirts, and other goodies to transform the tournament into a truly fun and exciting event for everyone involved. Serving as a great way to encourage young anglers to strut their stuff, the Fritz Boyden Memorial Youth Tournament is a celebration of fishing on the Outer Banks that kids of all ages will adore.
