Come out to Pirate’s Cove Marina and spend a pleasant summer day engaged in a family friendly fishing tournament. The Small Fry Tournament is one of the Outer Banks's only annual fishing tournaments that’s just for kids. There are two age groups: 3-8 and 9-15. The participants spend the day putting their fishing skills to the test, and the event concludes with awards being presented for the biggest catches from each age group. It’s a great chance to expose children to competitive fishing as well as meet others their own age. This Outer Banks event is usually held around the 4th of July.
