Although this is a traditional off-shore tournament, “Go Fast,” trailerable center console boats are invited and encouraged to participate.

The three-day event includes registration and a Captain’s meeting on day one, a full day of fishing on day two and an awards ceremony on the final day.

A portion of the proceeds from the SPI Wahoo Classic tournament are donated to the Laguna Madre Education Foundation which provides scholarships to local high school students.
