“We’re thrilled to have the Ladies Kingfish Tournament return for another year,” said Blake Henry, South Padre Island CVB Director. “The committee has made a few changes this year, including lowering the age for the Youth Division and moving kingfish back into the overall offshore division, and having an exciting weekend lined up for all who attend. We’d love for you to join us and bring your daughter, granddaughter, niece, neighbor, or friend – it’s never too late to start your Island tradition, and the Ladies Kingfish Tournament is the perfect opportunity.”
