Fishing Tournament Season Is Here…
On South Padre Island, fishing year round is a high priority,but starting in August things really crank up in the realm of competitive tournament fishing. For some people it isn’t enough to just go fishing, they have to compete against others to see who can catch the biggest and best fish. If you are one of those, gear up, because it’s officially fishing tournament season on South Padre Island!
Top Fishing Tournaments & Events
Each of these tournaments bring lots of people to Port Isabel and South Padre Island. Those of us whom aren’t competing but that still get excited about competitive fishing can go to the docks as boats come in from a long day on the water, and view the impressive catches and weight-in. Both tournaments weigh-in at the Southpoint Marina in Port Isabel. TIFT weigh-in times are Friday, August 4th, between 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm, and on Saturday, August 5th, between and 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm. The LKT, Bay and Offshore Divisions, weigh-ins are both on Saturday, August 12th. The Bay Division weighs in from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm, with the Offshore Division coming in between 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm.

Fun for the Whole Family
I’m thinking Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark. How can you go wrong? (Maybe forget sunscreen.) There are lots of things for the rest of the family to do on South Padre Island.
Did you need me to make a list for you? Okay…
First there is the beach, the Gulf of Mexico and the Laguna Madre, so swimming, surfing, skimboarding, snorkeling, jet skis, parasailing, paddle boarding, kite boarding, kayaking. On land there is horseback riding, golf carts, beach bicycles, Segways, ziplining, shopping, and restaurants. Inland there is the lighthouse, deep water port, and zoo. See lots more Area Info.
