Reels For Heels Fishing Tournament

July 29th, 2019 by


The 5th Annual Reels for Heels Fishing Tournament presented by AEP Texas will be held on August 16-17 at Bluff’s Landing Marina. This signature event benefits Dress For Success Corpus Christi and the on-going workforce development and job training programs they offer women in the coastal bend area. This is the only affiliate in the country to host a saltwater fishing tournament to raise awareness of the organization’s mission and services to help disadvantaged women in South Texas.

Since starting up in 1997, Dress For Success has expanded to more than 140 cities and 19 countries and has helped more than 850,000 women work towards self-sufficiency. They work with a diverse group of non-profit and government agencies including homeless shelters, immigration services, and domestic violence shelters among others for suiting, career counseling, and a full range of related services.

Reels For Heels tournament day will be Saturday, August 17, and will include food, music, raffles, and vendors, and is open to men, women and junior anglers. Fishing starts at 1:00 PM and lasts until 3:00 PM. Awards and raffles will be presented after weigh-ins. The Captain’s Party is held at the Pavilion on Friday evening, August 16, at 5:30 PM where teams will check in and complete their final registration. One person from each team must attend this but it should be a pretty fun time!

Come join anglers from all over Texas. Tickets start at $25 – $100. For more info, visit
