Old Salt Fall King of the Beach - 20th Anniversary


$20,000 Top Prize – $100,000 Total Payout – All Anglers

November 7 - 9

The Host…. The City of Madeira Beach will again serve as the host city for the King of the Beach. The city continues to be a strong supporter of the Old Salt Fishing Foundation and it’s tournaments, with more than 10,000 competitors and spectators from all around the bay area, state and beyond attending the three-day event making this the largest King and Spanish Mackerel Tournament on the West Coast.

The Field…. Consisting of more than 400 boats of all powers and sizes that will converge on Madeira Beach to create the most exciting fishing tournament ever! “Anglers tell me all the time that they fish a lot of kingfish tournaments not only is this the most fun to fish but if there’s one to win, it’s hands down the King of the Beach”, says Old Salt VP, Dan Casey. “We’ve designed this tournament to match anglers of all abilities”, says Verdensky. “We’ve leveled the playing field with a modest $195 entry fee and a 30 mile fishing boundary. This makes the K.O.T.B. a tournament that either a seasoned S.K.A. (Southern Kingfish Association) angler OR a novice can win. The ultimate goal of the King of the Beach is to offer a competitive community tournament with the maximum opportunity for payouts at minimal cost to the angler, all while doing it for a deserving cause.”

Featured Artist…. Scott Spillman is an imaginative illustrator and painter who is driven by an incredible passion for self-expression through art. His works are often noted for their unique style, elegance, and technique. Scott has developed an innovative style that blends precise realism with abstract expressionism. His use of vibrant colors and strong lines make his work an excellent choice for a wide range of projects and purposes.

Three Days of Events….

Thursday night kicks off this three-day festival with a bang. Picture this, a recreation field on the water just minutes from the Gulf. Add live music, a food festival with the best local flavor, all types of marine and art vendors and a boat show. You now have a captains’ party like none other!

Friday night continues the fun with more great activities, food and a FREE concert.

Saturday starts off early afternoon with more food and drinks to try, live music all day, interactive kids zone, a King and Spanish mackerel weigh-in with over $100,000 in cash and prizes. To end the evening and this festival, a new “King” will be crowned.
