The Roy Martin Young Anglers Tournament (July 14th, 2012) has added a Special Red Snapper category to reflect the recent extension of the Gulf of Mexico Red Snapper Season. No points will be awarded in this category toward the Master Angler award.
Prizes for this category:
- 1st place – $300 savings bond,
- 2nd place – $200 savings bond,
- 3rd place – $100 savings bond
based on weight of the fish in accordance with RMYAT rules for other categories. All prizes for this special category were provided by Syn-Fab. Minimum length for Red Snapper in the Roy Martin Young Anglers tournament will be 20″.
The 54th Annual Tournament, sponsored by Exxon-Mobil, is Saturday, July 14th. The weigh station will be open from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. with the tournament beginning at 5:00 a.m. Open to all anglers 15 years old and younger. Every angler that weighs in a fish gets a Zeigler hot dog, a bag of Golden Flake potato chips, an ice cold Coca Cola, and a Blue Bell ice cream. The proceeds benefit annual Children’s Christmas Shopping Tour (sponsored by the Mobile Jaycees).
The awards ceremony for the Roy Martin Young Anglers Tournament will be held immediately following the tournament at the ADSFR site.
The Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo recently announced that a limited number of Red Snapper tags would be issued for the 79th Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo. Only 200 tags were available and selected on a lottery basis. The 200 anglers that were selected will be contacted by Rodeo officials. While Red Snapper will not be a category in the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo, a random drawing for $500 will be held for all anglers with a special Rodeo Red Snapper tag who enter a red snapper at the 79th Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo.
Anglers who receive a Special Red Snapper Tag will be required to pick the tag up at the July 19th Liar’s Contest starting at 6pm. Proof of purchase of an ADSFR Rodeo ticket and a valid ID must be provided to claim a Red Snapper Tag. The Liar’s Contest will be held at 630pm followed by live music with Ryan Balthrop and Friends.
The Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo has announced species changes for the 79th Tournament. Red Snapper and Grey Triggerfish will be closed to recreational fishing during the tournament and will be replaced by Lane Snapper and Gag Grouper. For a second year the Amberjack category will be replaced by Swordfish.
Other changes include the consolidation of the Recreational and Open divisions into one King mackerel Jackpot with a ticket price of $200. The Paradise Marine/Scout Boats King Mackerel Jackpot pays cash for 1st through 10th place with a 1st place prize of $10,000 based on 125 entries. 2nd through 10th place payouts are based on the number of entries.
