Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., with fishing around the docks to follow. Lunch is free for everyone.

Last year, more than 120 children participated in the tournament, winning prizes for most fish, heaviest fish and longest fish.

Cut bait is provided, but participants need to bring their own pole and hook, and can bring other bait if desired.

Bonita Bill's is located at 702 Fisherman's Wharf.
