Texas International Fishing Tournament Includes Kids in the Fun

SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Texas - Port Isabel and South Padre Island play host to Texas’ largest saltwater fishing tournament!

The Texas International Fishing Tournament attracts thousands of spectators, including children, who practiced their fishing skills with a tank full of fish at the Island Convention Center.

“It's just a youth nonprofit organization that provides a hands-on fishing event for kids so we bring the fish to them,” said JP Brazeal, President of Kid Fish Foundation. 

The Texas International Fishing Tournaments seeks to get kids enthusiastic about fishing.

1500 anglers and more than 500 boats are expected to compete in the tournament tomorrow.

The fish caught will be weighed in the afternoon at the Southpoint Marina.
