Fisherman’s Post is looking to work with area sponsors to help make the tenth year of its Inshore Tournament Trail another huge success. The Fisherman’s Post Inshore Trail, hosting events from Topsail to Ocean Isle, has quickly become the area’s premiere saltwater fishing tournament series, and proceeds from the events will be donated to non-profits in each tournament’s area.
The 2021 Inshore Tournament Trail is a series of five events—Ocean Isle, Topsail, Wrightsville Beach, Southport, and Carolina Beach—that culminates with an invite-only Championship, so sponsoring the Inshore Trail can provide your company with great exposure along the entire southeastern NC coast.
Each event (and the Championship) will host red drum weigh-ins, playing on the popularity of this species and the trend towards smaller boats and inshore fishing. And since the Inshore Trail is a product of Fisherman’s Post, the events and their sponsors are guaranteed high visibility in front of the large saltwater fishing community of southeastern North Carolina.
In addition to being strongly marketed, our events are very popular, as we put emphasis on providing our participants with a weekend of events (captains’ parties, awards parties & dinners, etc.). We also emphasize a family-friendly atmosphere (by encouraging junior, lady, and senior angler participation) and conservation (by bonus payouts for live weigh-in and releasing live fish).
Market your business, expose potential clients to your services, and create a favorable impression of your business by aligning yourself with this very popular and highly visible inshore tournament series (and proceeds from each event will go to a great cause).
