Mobile Jaycees Add Special Red Snapper Category to Roy Martin Young Anglers Tournament

July 10, 2012

The Roy Martin Young Anglers Tournament (July 14th, 2012) will feature a Special Red Snapper category to reflect the recent extension of the Gulf of Mexico Red Snapper Season. No points towards determination of the Master Anger will be awarded for this category. Prizes for this category will be: 1st place - $300 savings bond, 2nd place - $200 savings bond, and 3rd place - $100 savings bond. Winners will be based on the weight of the fish in accordance with RMYAT rules for other categories. All prizes for this special category were provided by SYN-FAB. The minimum length for Red Snapper in the Roy Martin Young Anglers tournament will be 20".

The Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo recently announced that a limited number of Red Snapper tags were issued for the 79th Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo. Only 200 tags were available and selected on a lottery basis. The 200 anglers that were selected will be contacted by Rodeo officials. While Red Snapper will not be a category in the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo, a random drawing for $500 will be held for all anglers with a special Rodeo Red Snapper tag that enter a Red snapper at the 79th Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo.

Anglers who receive a Special Red Snapper Tag will be required to pick up the tag at the July 19th Liarís Contest starting at 6pm. Proof of purchase of an ADSFR Rodeo ticket and a valid ID must be provided to claim a Red Snapper Tag. The Liarís Contest will be held at 6:30pm followed by live music with Ryan Balthrop and Friends.
