About the Tournament

Surf Cats was a concept of seven fishing buddies who enjoyed fishing together, whether it was surf fishing or bass fishing.

These seven individuals would meet on a designated weekend at Big Shell and fish against one another with the winner, the person catching the biggest fish, taking home the money in the pot.

This venture went on for several years when it was suggested that we ought to invite other fisherman to fish with us thus, making the money pots larger. As we invited more people they in turn began to invite friends.

Since Surf Cats inception it has grown each year, the first year (1985) there were 87 men and women competing for the small prizes. As the years progress the number of contestants has increased. This tournament has become a well-known event from San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Laredo, Brownsville, and Corpus Christi. The tournament has had participants from as far away as Iowa, Arizona, Utah, and California. The tournament is held every year in October (the weekend on which Columbus Day is observed). For the year of 2010, the tournament will be held during October 8th to the 10th.

This tournament has never been canceled (it has only been rescheduled once because of a forecasted hurricane); rain or shine the tournament will always go on.

Participants will compete in two divisions, the open and sport. In the Open Division, you can weigh the one heaviest fish of any species caught by you.

Bausele's watches are all inspired by Australia and contain local elements in the crown, but the replica watches sale pushes the envelope further with an Australian-manufactured case. The interestingly dappled ring surrounding the dial is made of replica watches sale a lightweight ceramic-like material with an appearance and texture similar to granite. Bauselite is manufactured locally in replica watches uk by a new company called Australian Advanced Manufacturing Pty Ltd., which was formed as a joint venture between Bausele and Flinders University. Component manufacturing is rare in Australia, and as an Aussie myself, I'm glad to see that replica watches sale is supporting the development of local industry. While wearing the Terra Australis, I often found myself idly running my fingers over the Bauselite case it has a unique feel unlike any of the materials I'm used to in replica watches uk and this textural element is certainly a selling point for those looking for something just a tad different from typical timepieces.
