Make your plans now. The Annual Bastille Day Kingfish Tournament will be held Sunday, July 15 at Hull Bay, St. Thomas. Fishing begins at 5:30 a.m and ends at noon, when the beach side party begins, with food, music, and fun. An awards ceremony will follow.
The tournament, one of the many activities celebrating French Heritage Week, was first organized by the Northside Sportfishing Club in 1987 and generally attracts hundreds of anglers aboard more than 100 boats from throughout the Virgin Islands. Last year's winner, Gerald Greaux, reeled in a 43.14 pound kingfish.
Many prizes will be awarded including prizes for the best boat, best captain, lady anglers, junior anglers, and other fish species,like bonito, tuna, mackerel, and dolphin.
The Annual Bastille Day Kingfish Tournament benefits the Joseph Sibilly School, St.Thomas Rescue, The American Red Cross, and The Victim's Advocate Program.
