The 145h Annual CCA Florida Inter Chapter Challenge (ICC) is scheduled for June 22nd and 23rd, 2018 at River Palm Cottages and Fish Camp in Jensen Beach. The ICC was started in 2004 to bring members together from all over the state to share ideas, talk about their individual chapters and have a great day on the water. This is a great event for the entire family! The ICC is a photo all-release tournament and the Inshore Alex Jernigan Grand Champion is based on the team's total inches of their largest snook, redfish and trout. And the Offshore Rufus Wakeman Grand Champion is based on the team's total inches of their largest cobia, sailfish, and dolphin.
This year's tournament will feature the following divisions... Inshore, Offshore, Youth, Ladies, Team, Angler, Fly and Mystery Fish.
The Entry Fee is only $65 per angler and $30 per youth angler.
Your entry fee includes Texas Cattle Company dinners Friday and Saturday night, tournament T-shirt and goody bag. We are expecting to break the record this year so book early! Bring the boat, bring the family and come have some fun CCA style.
