Madeira Beach, FL – October 12, 2017 – T-H Marine Supplies, Inc., of Huntsville, Alabama, announces it has partnered with the Old Salt Fishing Foundation as a sponsor for the Fall King of the Beach Tournament and Festival. This is the 24th year for the event, which takes place this November 2-4, 2017 in Madeira Beach, Florida.
“The Old Salt King of the Beach provides a competitive saltwater tournament experience for anglers from across the spectrum with a level playing field and great payouts," Tom Verdensky, President of the Old Salt Fishing Foundation stated. "The lucrative payout/prize structure continues to draw more and more anglers. More anglers means more money for our charity partners and our youth and family programs. It’s a win all the way around.”
"The King of the Beach Tournament and Festival is known as the largest and richest kingfish tournament in the United States and we're excited to support it," T-H Marine’s CEO, Jeff Huntley, stated. "We look forward to doing even more with saltwater fishing and demonstrating how T-H Marine products can enhance each angler's experience, whether inshore or offshore."
The Fall King of the Beach Kingfish Tournament will host in excess of 600 fishing teams from Texas to North Carolina. Anglers will compete for the King of the Beach crown, a guaranteed $50,000 first place payout, and the potential for tens of thousands of dollars more. Of the three previous first place winners, each came away with $82,610, $79,908, and $75,431 respectively.
The tournament is the centerpiece of the three-day waterfront festival, where traveling anglers, local families, and residents enjoy fun activities, food, live music, a boat show, fishing apparel/gear, and various events.
“Quality partnerships, like the one we are embarking on with T-H Marine, provide foundational support allowing the Old Salt Fishing Foundation to deliver on its mission with tournaments like King of the Beach. We are both fortunate and honored by this new association," Verdensky added.
Proceeds from the three-day tournament and waterfront festival help the Old Salt Fishing Foundation fund family and youth fishing programs, provide financial support for select charities, and deliver effective advocacy on behalf of Florida anglers.
The Old Salt Fishing Foundation is a 46-year-old 501(C)(3) nonprofit, all volunteer fishing organization. Old Salt hosts and sanctions a range of competitive annual fishing events to provide support for local charities, angler advocacy, and youth and family fishing programs.
