2016 Redfish Classic

Plantation on Crystal River has partnered with Sodium Fishing Gear, Young Boats and many others to host the 2016 Plantation Redfish Classic on Saturday, September 17th at Plantation on Crystal River’s Adventure Center and Dive Shop.

                “Plantation on Crystal River is the premier angler’s resort in Citrus County and after hosting a number of fishing tournaments for other groups and participating in many tournaments ourselves, it was just natural to want to start a tournament we can call our own,” said Paul Cross, Plantation Adventure Center & Dive Shop manager.

                Make it a weekend with rooms nights starting at $129 per night for all tournament participants and their families. Hotel guests can take advantage of the lagoon-style pool, complimentary lawn games and can even dock their boat on the 1,600 feet of seawall for easy launching the morning of the event.  Events throughout the weekend include the Captain’s Dinner on Friday, Sept. 16th at 6 p.m. offering light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, Plantation Redfish Classic from daylight to 5 p.m. and Awards Banquet at 7 p.m. on Sept. 17 – and while redfish is the primary quest, there will also be categories for trout and grouper.

                Registration fee is $75 per person, and includes one swag bucket per team, entry for the Captain’s Dinner, tournament fee, entry to the Award’s Banquet, tournament t-shirts and free boat launch. Prizes will include first, second and third place for largest redfish, trout and grouper ranging from $3,000 to $100.
