what is
boo ray?

Boo Ray Bay Fishing Classics is an in-shore, invitational only, fishing tournament based out of Key Allegro Island, Rockport Texas. We highly encourage our fisherman to fish in the Aransas Bay area to see our fisherman's skill set in the same waters. This event includes a Thursday night Founder's Dinner, Friday Night Fish Fry & Calcutta, Saturday is the fishing tournament & Awards Ceremony Saturday night dinner. Although our "little" fishing tournament's priority is to make money for our charities, we do happen to create some fantastic memories in the process.

CALCUTTA CANCELED THIS YEARSTAY TUNED FOR NEXT YEAR

The tournament is limited to teams of 1 to 4 fisherman (so get some friends together) The way the Calcutta works is: each Tournament Team will be auctioned off with a minimum bid of $100. If you are there on Friday night, there will be a tremendous amount of pressure to buy your own team for at least the minimum. If you buy yourself or someone else’s team, you must pay immediately after the Calcutta in cash or check. Each Tournament Team will be allowed to weigh in one Redfish and one Trout. You will only be allowed to win one place in the Calcutta for each Trout and Refish category.

NOTE: 15% off the top of Calcutta goes to charity

CALCUTTA WORKS AS FOLLOWS:

Place - Big Trout

  • 1ST Place: 25% Cut of Purse
