Sport fishing action doesn’t get any more exciting than the Rock the Dock Fishing Tournament, which is returning to Panacea for its 8th annual edition. The 2016 Rock the Dock Fishing Tournament will be held on the Rock Landing Dock Stage in Panacea from April 23-24.

On April 22, the night before the engines are revved and the lines are cast, the Captains Meeting will take place, including happy hour, dinner, and some great live entertainment provided by Tom & the Cats.

Prizes and Jackpots In Every Category

In addition to the friendly competition and spectacular scenery, one of the reasons so many anglers in the region await the Rock the Dock Fishing Tournament every year is the generous array of prizes and raffles. 2016 is going to be no exception, as tournament organizers are prepared to offer outstanding prize money across several varying categories, giving more anglers a chance to win.

Whether you ply the open waters hoping to hook a serious king mackerel, or you prefer to take advantage of the quieter in shore waters and aim for beautiful trout, there’s a prize just waiting to be won. There’s even a separate division reserved exclusively for kayak fishing, and young anglers have their own chance to see who can bring home the biggest trophy. And you definitely don’t want to leave without entering the raffle for a chance to win a state-of-the-art 2016 Skeeter SX200 bay boat.
