The Amelia Island Guides Association presents its 7th annual fishing tournament, newly named the AIGA Inshore Classic. Anglers and visitors are invited to come out and join the fun! In addition to the Redfish Spot category where the legal Redfish (red drum) with the most spots wins the tournament, this year a heaviest aggregate of one Redfish and one Seatrout category has been added. All entry money will be paid out in prizes. There is also a Youth Division for the Redfish Spot category with prizes and trophies for places 1-3. Every year the AIGA shares the net proceeds with a Veteran organization and this year they will be donating to the American Legion Post 54. There will be food, beverages and music on Saturday.

The AIGA makes an effort to have high quality items at their Silent Auction which will be on site, and there will be raffle ticket sales with a chance to win rods, reels, tackle, and more. Anglers can register Friday December 2nd beginning at 6pm and attend the Captains meeting at 7pm. Fishing can begin first light on Saturday December 3 and fish can be brought in beginning at 11am and up until 4pm. Visitors could come and check out the Silent Auction (and help raise funds for Veterans), enjoy some food and music, and share the excitement of the fish coming t the weigh scale. Awards will be presented at 5pm.
