Need Help? Contact Us
Collect and snap pictures of mylar balloons off the water while you're fishing and win prizes!
CCA California and Beyond the Breakwater are partnering up with iAngler Tournament to put on the 2021 Mylar Summer Pickup! This is our effort to help clean up our local waters, both inshore and offshore, and get rid of the Mylar balloons that have been released in the past and are now just floating in our ocean. While fishing off the coast, we are seeing more and more mylar balloons floating in our waters and the fisherman are often the ones collecting them off the water. Now you can get rewarded for each balloon that you collect each day on the water!
1 balloon equals 1 point! Collect as many points as possible and win some awesome prizes!
Every entry must have each balloon layed out and separated in each picture
- One (1) entry per person per day
- One (1) point will be awarded for each balloon collected off of the water
- Each entry will also come with one (1) entry for a raffle at the end of the tournament
- There is no fee for entering the tournament
- Each participant must follow all laws, regulations and rules designated by the US Coast Guard, California Department of Fish & Wildlife, or any other law enforcement agencies
- For more information, please visit ccacalifornia.org
We will award prizes to the top three (3) persons that collect the most balloons throughout the summer season. One balloon equals one point! Also, each entry you make until November 1st will also be one entry into a special raffle at the end of the tournament. If you have any questions, please contact us at www.ccacalifornia.org . Good luck!

The Story Behind #TheMylarRoundUp…
The Mylar Summer Pickup has its roots in a friendly competition called “The Mylar Roundup” that was created by Madison Valadez and her dad Dave in September 2017. #TheMylarRoundUp was designed to run for an entire month in hopes of making a difference and positive impact on our oceans. This competition involved collecting each and every balloon and plastic bag or bottle that any fisherman came across while out on the water – including oceans, lakes, and streams. At the end of the month, they were able to collect a total of 381 mylar balloons off the water!
