  • PARTICIPATION: All anglers must have or share a canoe or kayak. There are no doubles or team categories in this tournament.

  • FISHING BOUNDARIES: All Public Texas Inshore Coastal Bays. Offshore waters, including jetties, rock breakwaters, beyond the breakers and the surf zone (any Gulf-facing waters), are considered Out of Bounds. If fishing San Luis Pass, contestants must not fish past the San Luis Pass bridge.
  • In addition, all fishing locations must be waters that can be legally paddled in accordance with either Local, State or Federal Jurisdiction. Any water which you have to get out of your craft and go over an obstacle (i.e., Weirs, Boat Barriers, Geotubes, etc.) are considered Out of Bounds. If in doubt, check with one of the Tournament Officials before the Tournament has officially started.
  • LAUNCH / PUT-IN: Launch must be a public launch available to any contestant. Launching from Private Property is not permitted. Doing so will result in disqualification. Any ramp fees, etc are the responsibility of the Angler.

  • FISHING HOURS: 5:30 am till 2:30 pm This means you can launch and start fishing at 5:30 am. NOTE that even though the official fishing hours show 2:30 pm, this is the time the tournament is officially over and you must have weighed in or be in weigh-in line prior to or at this time.

  • WEIGH-IN TIME: 12:30 pm till 2:30 pm. You can start weighing in your fish at 12:30 pm at the San Luis Pass County Park Marlin Pavilion. However all anglers must have checked in with the Contestant Official (orange vest) before 2:30 pm. If checked in they my go to their vehicle to retrieve their fish.

  • If a contestant is in the weigh-in line with fish prior to 2:30 pm, they may not leave the pavilion until fish are weighed. Once the official Tournament Clock reads 2:30 pm, the Tournament is considered closed and no one will be allowed to weigh-in after that time.

  • FISH CONDITION: All fish entered must comply with TPWD regulations. Do not bring undersize fish to the scale. If you have an oversize red drum which you would like to weigh that is OK, but note, oversize reds are not eligible to be entered in the tournament.  All entered fish shall also be in fresh, edible condition. Any frozen, crab eaten, or mutilated fish will be disqualified. Do not discard fish carcasses at the park.
  • PROTEST: Anglers who argue with tournament officials will be disqualified at the tournament officials’ discretion.
