IGFA Rules Apply: The entrant credited with a catch in tournament scoring must have hooked and played the fish to boat-side personally, without assistance.

SCORING: Scoring by weight: All scoring in the tournament is based on the weight of single fish entered by registered anglers. Teams are allowed to enter one fish into other categories if applicable. i.e. Female angler with the largest Wahoo can win First Price Wahoo and Female Angler category.
Single fish category: Individual anglers or teams may hold only one place at a time in a single category. Subsequent Entries: Individual anglers or teams may improve their standing in a given category or categories with subsequent entry of larger fish at any time before the close of the tournament.
In the event of an exact tie in weight, winners will be determined by the time of sign-in at weigh in.
Fishing Boundaries: Vessels must depart & return from Dade County and fish in US waters (Bahamas & Cuba off limits)
