Boots & Buckles on the Bay
Let the reels fly and lines get tight at the Fort Bend County Fair Association’s Fourth Annual Boots & Buckles on the Bay fishing tournament. Fishing teams will be competing for over $6,500 in cash and prizes including trophy belt buckles and boots on Saturday, May 20th in Matagorda. The fishing tournament is one of several events that are held throughout the year to help bring awareness to the Fort Bend County Fair and help raise scholarship monies.
The Grand Champion team of anglers will take home money, trophy belt buckles, and a $250 gift certificate for a pair of boots. First place Trout and Redfish anglers will be competing for money, trophy belt buckles, and a $250 Gift Certificate for a pair of boots. “Six buckles, six pair of boots, and it is all for a really good cause; makes for a really great day to be on the water,” said Sean Gutierrez, Fort Bend County Fair Board Member. Entry fee for a maximum 4-member team is $300. Team Stringers, Individual Fish, Junior Anglers, and Side Pots are an optional entry.
Men, women, and children will be fishing starting early on Saturday morning. A captain’s meeting will be held on Friday, May 19th at Poco Playa in Matagorda.
