Open to everyone, the Second Annual Chucktown Redfish Roundup will continue its distinction as the only universally accessible saltwater fishing tournament anywhere in the United States.

On the morning of Saturday, March 10, 2018, up to 400 saltwater anglers from all walks-of-life and all abilities will again participate side-by-side.  80 hungry, legal size, and food-quality Redfish (a.k.a. Red Drum) will be released into Colonial Lake. Tournament anglers that catch one can exchange the fish for a ticket to place into the fishbowl raffle jar.  The raffle will determine $250, $500 and $1,000 winners. Additional tournament prizes will be awarded for the longest Flounder, Spotted Sea Trout, and Blue Crab. Charleston’s most avid anglers will be trying their best to take home the $1,000 top prize. Fishing skills will be on the line, and the more fish you catch the better your odds of taking home the cash.  Tickets for sale through Eventbrite.
