Rod and Reef Slam
September 21 @ 6:00 am - 6:00 pm$40 – $120
This unique fishing tournament takes place over six oyster restoration areas on the Eastern Shore, including the Harris Creek, Tred Avon and Little Choptank oyster sanctuaries. Rather than going for the biggest fish, the winners of this tournament are the anglers who catch the most types of different species. The event, organized by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the Coastal Conservation League, Maryland Department of Natural Resources and the Saltwater Sportfishing Association, is meant to highlight the diversity of species that live on large oyster reefs.
Prizes will be awarded in different categories. The tournament is open to kayak and boat anglers. An afterparty will take place at the Lowes Wharf Marina & Inn in Sherwood.
