Noon, sharp, when the beachside party begins at Hull Bay Hideaway with food,
music by local bands and fun lasting right up until the Awards Ceremony.

The
Annual Bastille Day Kingfish Tournament is held in observation of the island’s
French heritage. The tournament is one of the big reasons why online travel

As well as being a day of fishing and fun for the whole family, the Annual
Bastille Day Kingfish Tournament benefits a variety of local organizations such
