Our tournament has received international attention by Ocean Paddler Magazine (see link below and go to page 10)
This is a multi-species tournament. There are 8 eligible species of fish that may be turned in for points. You need to have a minimum of 3 different species and you can turn in up to 6 fish per team. We score all the fish, regardless of which species, by POINTS PER INCH. When the length is between two numbers, we will always round down. As always, Department of fish and Wildlife rules and regulations apply. Catch and release has to follow the same rules as if you were keeping the fish. Below is a list of the species of fish that can be turned in for this tournament AND the points per inch for each species:
