It's on! The Long Beach Neptunes 2017 Annual Club Auction is happening Wednesday, April 19th! Tons of gear from the best brands in the industry will be available for your auctioning pleasure. Out bid your dive buddies for the best deals around and get geared up for another year of slug slaying!
NEW LOCATION so take note. We're holding this years auction at the Elk's Lodge in Garden Grove. Plenty of space to bring everyone in your crew so don't be shy on spreading the word. Did I mention the Elk's Lodge has a FULL BAR and food for all your bidding lubrication needs!?
We'll be making gear and brand updates as they develop so stay tuned and spread the word.
The tournament will run from March 1 through April 30, 2017 throughout California and Baja. The Awards Party will be held in Mid May 2017 in Redondo Beach and will once again include an awesome raffle with over $10,000 in gear up for grabs, plus food and drinks, and behind the scenes tours of the King Harbor White Sea Bass Growout.
Last years Top 3 fish were in the 60# range and multiple heads submitted to Hubbs-Seaworld for research.
A $25 entry is required prior to spearing a fish. Proceeds will be donated to the King Harbor Ocean Enhancement Foundation and Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute to support ongoing efforts to repopulate the local WSB population.
They are looking to expand the tournament this year with more participants and greater impact and they need your help! Here’s how:
Winners will be chosen by verifying the top three biggest fish. More info and contest rules at, oceansglobal.org/events.
Oceans Global may be offering charters out of King Harbor in Redondo Beach - for more information contact Clark at, firstname.lastname@example.org.
