At the NC VIP Fishing Tournament, the VIP stands for Very Important People as well as Visually Impaired Persons, and this tournament is a truly unique fishing event that ensures everyone can join in the fun of fall fishing on the Outer Banks. Held at Jennette’s Pier, which is well known as one of the best spots along the Outer Banks to drop a line, this tournament is the largest service project of its kind in the world, and is a great opportunity for VIPs everywhere to reel in some amazing catches, and some great times.

The tournament is co-hosted by the Lions Clubs of First Flight, Manteo, Nags Head, Wanchese, Lower Currituck and Columbia, and the annual event draws in VIPS from all across the East Coast and beyond. Roughly 525 VIPs and their guests make the trek to Nags Head for the event, as well as about 300 volunteers, plus about 125 high school and college student volunteers. Though the day revolves around fishing, the tournament also gives VIPs front row access to the beauty of the community through corresponding events and activities. Unique and fun for all ages, the NC VIP Fishing Tournament is a great event that anglers of all varieties will adore.
