About Bay Bash

The BAY BASH Family Fishing Tournament has been developed as an all-inclusive fishing event where both families and individuals, both serious and casual anglers, can come together for a good time and a great cause.  This event "Brings the Fun back into Fishing" - where children fishing off of a pier or from the shore have as much opportunity of landing a prize as those fishing off a speedy powerboat.
