The Rio Grande Valley Builders Association Hosts Its Annual Fishing Tournament on South Padre Island

The Rio Grande Valley Builders Association Hosts Its Annual Fishing Tournament on South Padre Island
  • Save

THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY BUILDERS ASSOCIATION (RGVBA) held its annual Fishing Tournament on June 25, 2022, at Jim’s Pier on South Padre Island, Texas. Over 20 boats participated in this annual event which offers a great opportunity to share a relaxing day at the beach with family and friends.

The event is open to members of the RGVBA—except for professional fishing guides— and features 4-person boats competing for cash prizes and bragging rights. This annual event for the RGVBA is always scheduled immediately after the Parade of Homes event, giving everyone an opportunity to relax and recover from all the hard work required to do a successful Parade of Homes. Participants used their fishing skills (and luck) to compete for cash prizes in various fishing categories, such as the heaviest redfish up to 27”, the heaviest trout up to 22”, and the heaviest flounder over 15+”. Additional cash prizes included a Grand Slam prize awarded to the team with the highest combined weight of one redfish, one flounder and one trout, and a “fun” cash prize awarded for the redfish with the most spots.

The RGVBA thanks its generous Fishing Tournament Sponsors:


  • McCoy’s Lumber and True Builders


  • Texas National Bank Mortgage


  • Builders FirstSource


  • Food Sponsor: McCoy’s Building Supplies and Sierra Title Co.
  • Beverage Sponsor: Encore Title
