The Big Reds Tournament - Anglers Gala
Guides and at least one Angler from each boat for The Big Reds Tournament must attend the Anglers Gala the night before the tournament! Families are welcome – just let us know how many people will attend.
Five vital events will take place at the Anglers Gala:
- Learn how to handle the Big Reds so they will make it safely into our broodstock culture systems.
- Get the Fish and Wildlife Commission’s license and banner that authorizes you to capture live fish over the legal slot limit.
- Tour the marine lab that will be the home of many of the broodfish.
- Have dinner and drinks on us.
- Meet the other anglers – you may be competitors in this event, but you’re all united by your deep concern for the preservation of our vital fisheries.
The event will be held at the Florida Institute of Technology’s Vero Beach Marine Laboratory, 805 46th Place East, Vero Beach, FL. Food and drink will be provided courtesy of Florida Tech and the Florida Beer Company.
