This year, FishStock was scheduled to take place during the weekend of September 8 - 10, 2017. But, due to Hurrican Irma and the need to prepare it has been rescheduled for the weekend of September 22- 24th. It will be held at the New Smyrna Beach Marina and Outriggers Restaurant. The forecast looks great and we hope you get to enjoy some family time and break from the office. The things that make FishStock such a fun weekend are the NSB Striker Offshore Tournament, NSB Redfish & Trout Challenge, KidStock Daily Seminars, CCA Silent Auction and FishStock 5k fun run.
