Grand Pavois Fishing: the meeting of the best competitors
The weekend will be reserved for the Grand Pavois Fishing, a sport fishing tournament at sea. The tournament will held on Saturday the 18th and Sunday the 19th. As part of this event, competitors will confront their skill on this ultimate two-round competition. The goal is to give a picture of modern fishing, a dynamic sport. The crews composed of two competitors will sail on the same boats – Valiant DR 620 – for sets of lure fishing and will practice the “No Kill”. Contestants will put back in water their fish after the control of the commissioners and only the five biggest catches will be kept in fish tanks.
A weighing of the fish will be done in front of the visitors. The best team will win many prizes: travel, kayak…
Impressive to see the boats with the sponsored teams leave and return at once, knowing that the jury members will also be on water to verify the sequence of the tournament. The fans will appreciate this competition, giving them the opportunity to meet sports fishermen!
