The Southern Kingfish Association tournament trail started in 1991 with events in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida—17 events in all. The first year, Intrepid gave us a 30-foot boat, Mercury supplied the motors, HydraSports gave away 20 footer, and Penn gave us some rods and reels. Carolina Skiff provided a boat for the top junior angler.
The Southern Backwater Tournament Series is a collection of seven separate catch and release tournaments which will be held out of Southwest Florida. Unlike any other tournament series in South Florida, The Backwater Series is the first professional inshore tournament series to cover all of southwest Florida.
In The Bite Sportfishing magazine. The name InTheBite is a term derived from professional boat captains who communicate and monitor fishing activity by how many "bites" they or their colleagues have on any given day. Our magazine is committed to being "In The Bite" and filling the need of the avid fishing community with timely news and features which professional captains, boat owners, mates and anglers read cover to cover every six weeks.
