2020 Virginia Beach Tuna Tournament Dock Party Update

Like everything else in 2020, the Virginia Beach Tuna Tournament is being forced to adapt to the current reality created by COVID 19.  Due to the social distancing requirements set by the state health department, it will not be possible to have the great parties that the VBTT is known for. 

With that said, one of the best places to “social distance” is 60 miles offshore, and we are still going to have a fishing tournament! Weigh stations will still be set up at Long Bay Pointe and the Virginia Beach Fishing Center.  We will be live streaming the Captain’s meeting on Wednesday and the weigh-ins Thursday – Saturday. We will be doing virtual and live weigh station giveaways for the participating boats and anglers. We are partnering with local restaurants to provide gift cards for each boat in addition to the captain’s buckets we give out every year.  Despite the COVID-19 challenges with which we are all faced, we will do everything we can to make this the best tournament possible.  We look forward to seeing you at registration, on your boat, and at the weigh stations. And don’t worry, Simon Says “Start planning for the 2021 parties…”
