V2 TACFT Website Image

For 20 years, Port Freeport has proudly hosted its annual Take-A-Child Fishing Tournament (TACFT) with the support and generosity of our sponsors and volunteers.   To protect the health and safety of our community and abide by preventative recommendations set forth by the CDC, the 20th Annual Take-a-Child Fishing Tournament will be held VIRTUALLY through the month of June.

The community event this year will feature a month-long youth tournament for Brazoria County residents allowing for families to fish at the time and location of their choice.  Participants will register online for the tournament, then submit a photo or short video of themselves and their catches for a chance to win a top prize through a random drawing, as well as other participation prizes.  

An important aspect of the tournament is the ability to give back to the community through the entry fee of a canned good item.  For this year’s tournament, the entry fee is waived and a donation of 10 canned good items per registered participant will be made to the Brazoria County Dream Center.
