Briefs: Upcoming area sports events, tryouts, signups

Pasco County Parks and Recreation will hold the 18th annual Anclote Fishing Tournament on Feb. 28 at Anclote Gulf Park Pier at 2305 Baillie's Bluff Road in Holiday.

The tournament is free to enter and for kids ages 5-16. Kids are broken down into age groups and awarded prizes for the most fish caught and the biggest fish caught in each age group. There is also a raffle where other prizes are given away.

"Last year, kids were catching 50 fish in an hour," recreation leader Trish Atwater said. "There is something for everybody at the event. We have prizes that kids can win in the raffle if they don't win the competition, so it's a lot of fun."

Kids must bring their own equipment and be accompanied by an adult. Registration times vary by age group.
