The excitement is mounting for the annual fishing tournament
in Frenchtown on June 11.
The event is sponsored jointly by The Committee for the Betterment of Carenage, Inc. and Coors Light distributed by Bellow's International.
The tournament is the official beginning of the Father's Day weekend celebration, which is being held June 16, 17 and 18 at the Joseph Aubain Ball Park in Frenchtown. This is the sixth year of this tournament.
The tournament will feature fishing from 5:30 a.m. to midday, the time
when all boats are required to return to the Gustave Quetel Fishing Center for the
weigh-in. Qualifying fish include dolphin, wahoo, horse-eye, barracuda, amberjack, bonito, tuna and mackerel.
A $1,000 cash prize is being offered by CBC to the angler reeling in the biggest fish. Prizes are to be awarded in several categories as well. The winners of both the Mother's Day and Father's Day fishing tournaments will be announced on Father's Day at 7 p.m.
An anglers meeting is scheduled for June 7 at the Frenchtown Community Center. Pre-registration will be available at the anglers meeting. A second registration day is set for June 10 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Aubain Ball Park.
In addition to Coors Light, Hawaiian Tropic is also a sponsor of the annual Father's Day Fishing Tournament in Frenchtown.
