Tournament registration for both guided and non-guided anglers includes entry to Friday’s Italian pasta dinner and Saturday’s seafood feast and silent auction.

Bounty on the Bay started out with humble beginnings: in 2003, the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership (TEP) hosted a pasta dinner and workshop on fishing techniques. The following year, the TEP wanted to take the next step, from the workshop to the water, so participants could turn the lesson into reality. This year, we celebrate the 14th Annual Bounty on the Bay!
A big part of the success of this event is owed to the guides, many whom have been participating from the start, donating their time, knowledge and equipment year after year in support of the event and the TEP. This year’s line-up is as follows: Andy Schneider, Chris Vertopoulos, David Johnson, Greg Hublou, Pat Abel, Bob Rees, Curt Hedges, Dave Harris, Jon Winter, Mike Arnold, Sky Freet and Ted Teufel.
Sponsors for the event include Kayak Tillamook, Northwest Hardwoods, Ninkasi Brewing, Fort George Brewery, ProCure Bait Scents and Brad’s Killer Fishing Gear. Garibaldi House Inn and Suites is the official hotel of Bounty on the Bay and is offering discounted rates for Friday and Saturday night stays if you mention Bounty on the Bay.
