This years event will be held October 4-19, 2013 along the shores of Brevard County. During this year’s SCISFT, anglers of all ages will be vying for thousands of dollars in cash and prizes. During the fifteen days of competition, anglers will test their surf and paddle fishing skills to catch as many different species of fish that cruise the beaches of the Space Coast (Brevard County). The paddle angler and shore angler catching the overall most inches of fish (accumulate by measuring two-to-six different species) will receive the top prizes of $1,000 and one of them will be designated the 2013 International Surf Fishing Champion of the World.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Anglers for Conservation’s “Hook Kids on Fishing” programs www.anglersforconservation.org. Each year, these programs introduce thousands of children and parents to recreational fishing for the first time.
