The Grand Strand Fishing Rodeo is a panel of local, Grand Strand piers that participate in monthly catch contests, tournaments and events that draw anglers to the area year after year - fishing is one of the activities we do best, after all! One of the most popular events hosted by the Grand Strand Fishing Rodeo is the ‘Take a Kid Fishing' tournament.

The ‘Take a Kid Fishing' Tournament is held to introduce young anglers to the sport of fishing while creating the opportunity for a parent, relative or volunteer to spend the day with a child. The event does provide complimentary snacks and drinks, and awards prizes, but only participating Grand Strand Piers that are official weigh stations for the Grand Strand Fishing Rodeo.

Best part of this event? It's free to enter. Either each child/adult team can bring their own equipment or participating piers will provide complimentary equipment, and awards will be given to the first, second, and third place winners at each pier for the largest single catch (child) and the total number of fish caught and released (per team) in each of three age divisions.
