Punta Gorda, FL (PRWEB) April 11, 2007
Friday, May 4 - Sunday, May 6, 2007 Charlotte Harbor welcomes the Oh Boy! Oberto Redfish Cup. This nationally televised event, which is open to the public, is now a permanent stop on the Redfish Tour.
This year, the Redfish Cup will offer more than $1.1 million dollars in guaranteed cash payouts to anglers. Registration for all open events has never been easier. Anglers can call 888-698-2591 to register in advance, or look for the local registration site a week prior to the tournament. The entry fee for each open event is $1,000 per team and teams may fish as many events as they wish.
In addition to the professional fishing tournament, spectators can experience an interactive festival atmosphere complete with cardboard boat races. These "boats" are constructed of cardboard, tape and glue and compete in a 150-yard paddle to the finish. The Big Air Dog Competition presents a crowd-pleasing competition of canine jumps and measured leaps into a dockside pool. Often compared to Jimmy Buffett, Jim Morris will be on-hand to play a free concert on Saturday evening.
