This season on the Elite Fishing Series we are looking for the best angler in the country and will do so by producing multiple Open Tour stops along Gulf and Atlantic coastal communities. If you’re from the Jacksonville or surrounding areas this is your shot at proving you are the top stik in the area without having to commit to travel and compete in multiple tournaments across the country.

We want to see who is the best in Duuuval, and while we have some names on the top of the list of favorites it may just be somebody that doesn’t show up much to tournaments but knows where the big ones live. This is your shot, everyone! This season we have put up a great payback scale which pays back 50% of the field… Finish in the top 20 (on 40 participants) and cut a check! Win and bank $15,000.00 cash without a team mate to share it with.

It’s going to be an exciting format to bring to the Sunshine state and we could not be prouder to partner with a historic and famous community like Jacksonville. Beaches. Parks. Museums. Sports. Shops. Food. Street Art. History. Jacksonville has it all, and now it’s your turn to experience this exciting Florida destination!
