Waivers will need to be signed by all fishers! Each team leader will be given a poker chip upon checking in. This chip will have the team number written on it and the team leader is responsible for placing this chip into the category you choose to enter after you catch your fish at the time of weigh in. This is a POKER TOURNAMENT.



The tournament will begin promptly at 6:00 a.m. on Saturday. You are permitted to launch from anywhere, however your poles cannot cast until 6:00 a.m.
Weigh in begins at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, June 2, 2018 and you must have your team chip in a bucket and be in line to weigh in by 4:00 p.m.

Weigh in will take place at the Pavilion, located in Dennis Dryer Municipal Harbor, Roberts Point Park, in Port Aransas.

Refreshments and food will be provided by PAH cookers. Cokes, iced tea, and water will also be provided by the cookers.

The fishing tournament is held in and around the intercostal waterways and bays surrounding Port Aransas, Texas within local jetties.
Each team can have up to four (4) fishers (guides normally do not fish, and are not included as one of the four (4) men, unless they fish).

There are two divisions, A GUIDED and A NON-GUIDED.

A guide is NOT required, but if you hire a guide, your will be entered into the GUIDED division.

Each team is responsible for providing its own boat, fuel, fishing tackle, bait, and refreshments and lunch for Saturday. Teams are also responsible for securing a guide, if they choose to use one.

AWARDS Trophies will be given for 1st-3rd place in both the GUIDED and NON-GUIDED divisions, in the following categories:

Biggest Trout:  within slot limit 15”-25”

Biggest Redfish: within slot limit 20”-28”

Biggest Stringer: 3 Trout/1 Redfish- Slot trout and redfish only.

Most Spots: Redfish caught with the most tail spots. You can use the same Redfish entered in another category for Most Spots.  Size does not apply unless number of spots are a tie. If same size, coin toss will determine winner. One Trophy Tournament wide.
Hard Luck: If your team couldn't catch a single presentable fish, no worries. Drop your chip in the Hard Luck Box for a chance to win a surprise that will be revealed the day of the Tournament. Hard Luck Prize will be presented as the Last Award after all standard categories have been announced, so be sure to stick around!

All participants are warned to be conscious of the ferry crossing times between the mainland and Mustang Island. Plan ahead, ferry delays can be considerable on a Saturday afternoon.
