THE JIM EHMAN MEMORIAL FISHING TOURNAMENT
May 17th & 18th, 2019 ~ Rockport, Texas
ARANSAS BAY CHAPTER CCA
Babes on the Bay is an all-women’s fishing tournament that has been in existence since
the year 2000. The tournament is hosted and run by the CCA Texas Aransas Bay
Chapter, based in Rockport, Texas. The tournament was created to help educate women
about the sport of saltwater fishing in a conservation minded approach. This format not
only educates and brings more women into the sport of fishing, but it instills an attitude of conservation to the sport through conservative bag limits in place during the tournament and encouraging the participants to keep only the fish they need.
The event offers an opportunity for women from across the State of Texas and the entire
country to come together in a fun filled weekend with live bands, vendor booths,
educational outreach by Texas Parks and Wildlife and other conservation minded
organizations. In addition, each participant of the tournament receives a CCA Texas
membership as part of their entry. This membership provides continued educational
outreach about conservation issues along the Texas coast through the CCA Texas state
newsletter Currents, and the CCA National magazine Tide.
Don’t miss out and be sure to join the largest all-women’s fishing event in the country. Be a part of the effort to educate women of all ages about the conservation of Texas’s coastal
resources and the sport of saltwater fishing.
