  • All fish must be caught by hook, line, rod, and reel. NO CAST NETS 

  • Check in master will have final judgement on size reading.

  • All photo submissions must have the provided tournament ruler clearly identifiable in all submitted pictures.

  • Two Specie tournament. The Largest bass per angler and the largest blue gill. The total length of both fish combined will determine the winner. This will be the overall champion. 

  • Cost is $75 per angler or $125 per family. Each child will be their own person. Meaning one child can't catch a Bass and their sibling catch a Blue Gill and they add those two fish together. The group rate is merely to help the tournament be more affordable to families with multiple children. Anglers fishing in the family group rate MUST be siblings. 

  • We cannot prevent anyone from fishing in the same pond or lake but purposely following anglers and their families to fishing spots is prohibited. 

  • In the event of a tie, the angler who registered first will determine the winner. 

  • All anglers must obey all State of Florida Fishing Regulations, including size and bag limits.
