Inshore Slam Fishing TournamentVisit Website
Come join us to celebrate our 20th annual tournament. The Manteo Rotary Club held the “Rockfish Rodeo” for 16 years. Your support has allowed us to provide almost $300,000 in scholarships to deserving young people in Dare County, plus support many other community needs. In 2014, due to the decline in the striper populations, and after much consideration, we decided to reformat our tournament. It is now the “INSHORE SLAM”. Participants now compete for the largest fish in four categories; stripers, flounder, puppy drum, and speckle trout. There is also a single “Grand Slam” award for the individual who weighs in fish from at least three of the four categories, with the highest total weight. Our tournament is a family event. We encourage everyone to share the fun and excitement of the tournament with your spouse, friends, family, and especially make it a point to “take a kid fishing”. Prizes and trophies will be awarded in adult, women’s and youth divisions.
Location: Tournament is held on the Manteo waterfront, with docking available, at the Maritime Museum
