Cast For A Cure - 2024 Team Surf Fishing Tournament

Benefiting the Tunnell Cancer Center Special Needs Fund
Hosted by: Old Inlet Bait and Tackle

Cast for a Cure is a team surf fishing tournament organized and hosted by Old Inlet Bait and Tackle.  The tournament was founded in 2013 by Brandy Timmons and Clark Evans as result of both experiencing the impact of cancer on a family member. 

The mission of the tournament is to bring the local surf fishing community together to raise awareness and funds for local cancer charities.  To date, the tournament has raised more than $37,000.  The current beneficiary is the Beebe Medical Foundation - Tunnell Cancer Center – Patient Special Needs Fund. Cast for a Cure donated $10,000 to the Beebe Medical Foundation in 2022 and $9,000 in 2023.

Cast for a Cure 2024 will be held on Saturday, May 18 with an awards ceremony to be held on Sunday, May 19 at Big Fish Ocean View, 30415 Cedar Neck Road, Ocean View, DE 19970 from Noon til 3pm.

Our goal for 2024 is to donate more than $10,000.  Items donated by the local business community are used as raffle and silent auction items at the awards ceremony.

Monetary donations are also accepted and appreciated.  Checks should be made out directly to the Beebe Medical Foundation.

Mutilated fish will not be scored.

Judges will be assigned to the tournament fishing area. Only Judges may measure and record the score of the fish. Please do not record your own score.

Release Incentive: Released fish will earn a One Point Release Bonus (Bring a bucket to keep fish alive in until a judge arrives. Place the bucket dune side of your truck to let the judge know you have a fish to be scored.)

Once a fish has been measured a section of the tail will be cut off making the fish no longer eligible if the angler chooses to keep fish.

Total points will determine the winners. The first tiebreaker will be awarded to the team catching the most fish. The second tiebreaker will be decided by the length of the largest fish scored by each team.
