Captain Bob's Marina Flounder King TournamentIt’s spring – and no Chincoteague Island spring is complete without a Captain Bob’s Marina Flounder King Tournament!

Captain Bob’s Marina Flounder King Tournament is a local tradition that pays out cash prizes for the top winners, so if you like yourself some fishing and fancy yourself good at it, head on over to Chincoteague Island between May 16th – May 25th and register to enter. You don’t even need a boat! (but that would probably help)

Here’s a list of the rules and regulations for this year’s Captain Bob’s Marina Flounder King Tournament:

  • Registration fee is $35
  • You can fish on the shore or off a boat.
  • You have 10 days to try and catch the biggest flounder, using a hook and line and in accordance with all applicable state and federal regulations regarding size and creel limits.
  • Tournament legal fish may only come from within Chincoteague and Assateague waters. Outside the inlet gets you out of the tournament.
  • Daily weigh-ins take place between 1pm and 6pm at Captain Bob’s Marina, with the final weigh-in on Sunday, May 25th at 1pm.
  • Winner is the fisher with the greatest total daily weight of three fish or less.
  • Calcutta winner: heaviest flounder of the tournament.
  • Heaviest Croaker and Heaviest Gray Trout prizes are also available.

Five cash prizes will be given and will be based upon entree fees collected less tournament expenses:

  • First Place: 40% of take
  • Second Place: 25% of take
  • Third Place: 15% of take
  • Fourth Place: Ugly Stik/Penn Combo
  • Fifth Place: $50 gift certificate

Seasons on Chincoteague Island

There’s no bad season for a Chincoteague Island visit.

We are blessed with all four seasons, here on Chincoteague island, and each one is unique and worth experiencing. We have a tendency to think only of certain places at certain times when it comes to planning our vacations and, thus, can miss out. This guide, then, is an attempt to help break you of that one-season-worth-visiting mindset, at least when it comes to the seasons on Chincoteague Island.

Chincoteague Island Winters
There’s no denying it gets cold here but not so cold that you can’t still bundle up and enjoy our town, beaches, and wildlife. Now can be a great time to experience a less-touristy version of island life.
