The $50,000 Kingfish



With $150,000 in total payouts and $50,000 for the 1st place winner, the Fall King of the Beach Kingfish Tournament is the richest Kingfish tournament in the world. Old Salt Fishing Foundation will crown and award $50,000 to the “King” – the Captain who weighs the largest Kingfish of the tournament. That's better than just a good day of fishing. $50,000 better!
