From staff reports

The annual Young Life Fishing Derby Tournament offers avid fishermen and women the opportunity to be involved in a competitive fishing tournament, while also rewarding younger fishers for their participation.

This year’s tournament will be held Friday, Oct. 2 and Saturday, Oct. 3, and all tournament proceeds support Beaufort Young Life.

The Captain’s Meeting will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 2 at Beaufort Boat and Dock, 1734 Ribaut Rd., Port Royal.

The following morning fishing will begin at 6 a.m., and weigh in will be from 4 to 6 p.m. at Beaufort Yacht and Sailing Club, 30 Yacht Club Dr.

The weigh-in will be immediately followed by the awards ceremony and raffle drawings.

There will be seven different qualifying species: redfish, trout, flounder, black drum, sheepshead, king mackerel and Spanish mackerel.

Entry fee is $200. There is no limit to number of anglers on a boat. Last year, a total of $10,000 in prizes were awarded to off-shore and on-shore participants. This year there will be seven opportunities to win, one for each species, so a participant can win multiple times.

Young Life, a teen outreach ministry, is a world-class organization for adolescents. Young Life’s staff and volunteers enter the world of kids, focusing on what matters to them — fun, adventure, friendship and a sense of significance.

For a great day of fishing, a chance to win prize money, and to help impact kids’ lives in Beaufort, come fish in the Young Life tournament. For more information, email Andrew Lancaster at andrewlancasteryl@gmail.com or visit ylfishingderby.com.
