June 2nd in Pensacola Beach
…It’s all about fun, sisterhood and fishing
Mark your calendars for the 6th annual Fishin’ Chix Pink Rubber Boots Ladies Fishing Rodeo on June 2, at Flounder’s Chowder House in Pensacola Beach, Florida.
Claudia Espenscheid, from Northwest Florida, is the founder and president of Fishin’ Chix, a unique company that encourages women to discover the fascinating world of fishing by organizing fishing tournaments and offering a line of women’s fishing apparel. With members in 38 states, the Fishin’ Chix motto is to inspire and fashionably attire adventuresome ‘reel’ women. In a word….it’s fun.
Fishing festivities begin with a Captain’s Meeting for entrants at 6:30 pm, May 31, at Flounder’s. The actual fishing tournament starts at 6:30 am on June 2, with fish weigh-ins at Flounder’s from noon to 2 pm, followed by an afternoon of fun and sisterhood at the awards ceremony.
Lady anglers of all ages can become involved in a variety of ways. Individuals with a boat can sign up for $200 per person, which includes a Fishin’ Chix annual membership. Members, with their own boat, can register for $150 per person.
No boat? No experience? No problem. This is a unique turnkey adventure for women of all ages and experience levels. If they don’t have access to their own boat, Fishin’ Chix helps place lady anglers on chartered boats. The entry fee for the whole package is $350 per person, which includes tournament entry, placement on a charter boat with a Captain, instruction, use of all equipment, bait, and a Fishin’ Chix annual membership.
