Babes on Bay tournament to attract 1,100 women

The 13th annual Jim Ehman Memorial “Babes on the Bay” fishing tournament will be held beginning at sunrise on Saturday, May 19. The kick-off will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, May 18, at the Rockport festival grounds.

The weigh-in for the event is from noon until 4 p.m. Prizes will be given for five divisions: team with a professional guide (any bait); team with a professional guide (artificial only); team with non-professional guide (any bait); team with non-professional guide (artificial only); and Babe-ette Division (ages 16 and under). First through fifth places will be awarded for the first four divisions with additional prizes for the Babe-ette Division. Awards will be presented at approximately 6 p.m., after the weigh in Saturday.

The tournament is the largest one-day fishing tournament in the United States. Last year Babes on the Bay had 1,140 ladies, of all ages, on 320 teams. It is expected to be bigger than ever, with possibly more than 1,200 entries.

Along with the fishing tournament, the event also features a food vendors court and a babes shopping mall where vendors sell everything.
