Tripletail Classic

Launched in 2020, The Tripletail Classic is a first of its kind fly fishing only tournament in the Mobile Bay area. We are excited to be hosting this tournament yet again in June of 2024!

The tournament is a Catch, Tag, Photo, Release format targeting the Atlantic Tripletail species only. Participants use dart tagging kits and the Fishing Chaos app to log and submit all of their catches.

We are excited to be teamed with the USM Gulf Coast Research Lab to conduct this fundraising tournament that will provide an opportunity to tag and release a significant quantity of fish for research, as well as inject funds into GCRL conservation efforts.

Captain's Meeting

The captain’s meeting must be attended by, at a minimum, one team member in order to receive tagging kits, tagging instructions, and a general briefing on the tournament rules. It will be held at the Weeks Bay Reserve Tonsmeire Resource Center in Fairhope at 5:30pm on Friday, June 28th 2024.

You will pickup your team bags that will be loaded with goodies, including the custom printed Skinny Water Culture  tournament shirts!
