The Tri-State Canyon Shootout is back! From August 3rd to 5th, one of the finest sport fishing tournaments in the Northeast will once again be taking place in the waters off the coast of Block Island. Competitors in the shootout will partake in a captains meeting on August 2nd and begin 36 grueling hours of fishing the following morning.
Competitors will head 100 miles offshore in hopes of capturing the big game lying in wait. Their prey: Bigeye and Yellowfin Tuna.
“These fish don’t come quietly. This is full on, adrenaline-spiking sport fishing that pits man against beast in the fight of their lives.” – Block Island Tourist Council
