Emerald Coast Open Lionfish Tournament

Emerald Coast Open Lionfish Tournament

Emerald Coast Open Lionfish TournamentDestin is home to many great fishing tournaments, and the Emerald Coast Open Lionfish Tournament is no exception! This exciting fishing tournament in Destin kicks off on Thursday, May 16th at AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar, and lasts all the way until Sunday, May 19th. Registration is open until 7 PM on May 16th, so don’t wait!

This is an exciting event that will surely keep you entertained all weekend long. Harvesting begins each day during the tournament at first light and ends at last light. The weigh stations will open at 3 PM and close at 6 PM on Friday and Saturday, so you have plenty of time to weigh your fish. On Sunday, the final day of the tournament, the weigh stations open at 7 AM and close at 11 AM, so you’ll want to be quick when weighing your lionfish. Cash prizes will be awarded to those who catch the most lionfish and those who catch the largest lionfish. You’ll also have the chance to win gear prizes and raffles!

While lionfish are beautiful creatures, they are an invasive species that prey on native fish and reduce population on some reefs by more than 90%! They eat over 30 different species of fish found in the Gulf of Mexico, but never their own kind. One female lionfish spawns around 27,000 eggs every 2.5 days – that’s a lot of lionfish populating the ocean! By removing lionfish from our waters, we help protect native fish species. Visit here to learn more about lionfish.

In addition, it’s also restaurant week during the Emerald Coast Open! Until May 16th you can sample lionfish prepared in a unique way at the featured restaurants listed here. Restaurant week helps to promote the Lionfish Removal and Awareness Day Festival. If you have never tried lionfish before, you might be surprised to find that it tastes just like a cross between snapper and grouper. As long as the spines are removed, lionfish can be prepared just like any other fish. Try it fried, blackened, or grilled! Here are some delicious lionfish recipes for you to try.

Will we see you down in Destin for the Emerald Coast Open Lionfish Tournament? Bring your friends and family for an incredible experience! You’ll have the chance to learn about lionfish and even taste some delicious cuisine.

If you need somewhere to stay for the lionfish tournament, our lodging partners Southern Vacation Rentals still have availability in Destin for the weekend. Bringing the whole family? Check out Our Piece of Paradise, a four-bedroom vacation home in Destin that sleeps 10.
