Captain Bob’s 2nd annual Ladies’ Floozie Flounder Tournament, Chincoteague Island’s only fishing tournament for women, benefiting breast cancer education and research, is scheduled for June 10th, 11th, & 12th, 2016!
Fishing tournaments aren’t all that rare, even if you winnow it down to flounder fishing tournaments – but a Ladies only Floozie Flounder Tournament, now that’s something.
Captain Bob’s Marina has hosted their Flounder King Tournament for many years and, while it hasn’t been restricted to men only, the contestants have been predominantly male, despite the host of talented women fishers out there.
The Floozie Flounder Tournament was started in hopes of both coaxing more women to the tournament scene AND to help raise funds for breast cancer education and research, as well as to help support families and individuals dealing with the fallout of breast cancer. The inaugural, 2015 Floozie Flounder Tournament was a happy success, making this year’s tournament a shoe-in to return.
The Floozie Flounder Tournament is open to women only. Contestants are allowed to fish by land or by water and, while a man can operate the boat, they cannot assist in the fishing, baiting, netting, or removal of the fish from the water. The heaviest flounder caught and weighed wins the $500!
Whether you fish or not, you can help by purchasing a 2nd annual Ladies Floozie Flounder Tournament t-shirt (see the design at the top of the page) with all funds raised going towards increasing awareness of breast cancer through education and testing, as well as providing support for those who have or have had this deadly and disfiguring affliction.
