The Pirate’s Cove Tournaments touch many lives each year. Charities, camaraderie, family time – all benefits of the effort we put forth together. In light of the lost opportunities for one on one promotion in the marine industry, our Board of Directors members have put special emphasis on supporting our sponsors this year as we adjust to the new normal that awaits.
I am very excited to create these additional benefits and opportunities you and your company. More exposure to fishermen, both on site and at home, and new avenues for networking with industry partners are highlighted in this new sponsor video. Our goal is to support you as you have supported us – we are all in this together and I can guarantee, at least, that we will have a good time trying! Call Heather for more information on 2023 Sponsorships.
Celebrating 40 Years!
PCBT participants have seen it all. A race to the scales, double digit releases, granders, near granders, Nashville stars, the covid and winners determined by just fractions of a second. Some say it just doesn’t get better than that. But here we are, heading into our 40th year and Tournament Week just keeps getting better!
2022 was an exceptional year where PCBT led the industry in offering omni or non omni sonar categories and we kept the bar high for modified release as well with no blue marlin on the scales. A purse of over a million was distributed in 2022 and over 25 cash prizes were awarded, once again ensuring that many of our exceptional crews are included on awards night!
The Alice Kelly continues to set the standard for ladies only events with over 900 anglers, a record number of teams and a record purse as well. The ladies put it all on the line every year and PCBT, Inc responds by donating all of the AKLM proceeds to the Interfaith Community Outreach (formerly Alice’s Outer Banks Cancer Support Group). This group assists more than 250 families touched by cancer every year and the AKLM has been their top fundraiser since 1988.
Share in Our Success
Tournament Week is simply unique! A singular location with passed appetizers on the docks every night, fashion shows for the ladies and kids’ camp for our future anglers – everything you want from a world class event plus exceptional fishing, low fees and great prize money. And the best part – our bands, bars and NC Catch dinners are all under one air conditioned roof!
And while the action is hot on site at Pirate’s Cove Marina, we can boast over 70,000 listeners to our on line VHF coverage, an additional 1500 folks that downloaded our custom PCBT APP and over 1 million impressions across Social Media. Viral is our new norm…well, at least several of our posts are trending over 1 million views!
Our Commitment To You
Tournament Week – as exceptional as it is – is just a week. So here at PCBT we are kicking it up a notch by investing in our social media outlets. We are committed to keep our friends, followers and viewers engaged all year long…and if they follow us, they will follow you! As we celebrate our 40th year we will host new contests and giveaways all with 40’s in mind and an AKLM “How To” video series designed to drive viewers to our sponsors! Non tournament participants can fish alongside our world class teams with our ever popular PCBT Official Bracket and they have easy access to follow the action on our APP, live leader boards and VHF Radio Control. During the off season PCBT celebrates exceptional fishing by sharing posts from friends around the globe – we keep our audience involved year round.
