South Padre Ladies Kingfish Tournament

August 8-10, 2014

The 32nd Annual South Padre Island Chamber of Commerce Ladies Kingfish Tournament held on August 9-11, 2013 was a huge success.

The South Padre Island Convention Centre welcomed anglers, captains and their families on Friday night for registration. Early Saturday morning, 270 anglers and 102 boats hit the waterways, returning to the docks before 7:00 p.m. to weigh in over almost 3,000 pounds of fish. This year's tournament brought 154 bay anglers and 116 offshore.

The Awards Ceremony on Sunday brought anglers and their families together to recognize those who took top prizes. 30 anglers received framed original artwork by Dinah Bowman specific to the species they won. Trophies done by Bowman were also awarded for Grand Champion Bay Division and Grand Champion Offshore Division.

This year's bay champion was Sandy Broadway from South Padre Island. Sandy brought in all three species for a total weight of 14.7. She was fishing with Craig Woolly on the boat Team Fish On. DeDe Arnhold from Wichita Falls, Texas walked away with the Offshore Championship when she brought in all four species for a total weight of 43.65. DeDe was fishing on the Reel Cowboy with Duncan Arnold. Congratulations to these anglers and all the winners of this year's tournament.
