The William R. Mote Memorial Snook Shindig is a catch, sample and release tournament designed to gain valuable information on our important local snook fishery, including the impact of hatchery-reared snook released into Sarasota Bay by Mote Marine Laboratory.
We expect all anglers in the tournament to also comply with FWC rules and regulations.
Economy Tackle is offering a limited number of kayak rentals to Shindig participants at a discounted rate of $15/day for single kayaks ($35/d regular) and tandem kayaks for $20/day ($40/d regular). Registered Shindig participants can bring their registration receipt to Economy Tackle to get the discount. Anglers are responsible for transporting the kayaks from the store and back again within 24 hours of rental.
