Tournament Rules

  • Teams are 1-4 anglers.
  • Teams must fish together from the same boat.
  • Multiple teams may fish from the same boat. For example, two 2-man teams may fish from the same boat.
  • Fishing is permitted from Bulls Bay to Edisto Beach.
  • Teams may fish a maximum of one day during the time period June 1 – June 16, 2024.
  • Anglers must boat their fish, taking care to not harm the fish, and take a photo of the fish. The photo must be date and time stamped. Most smartphones do this automatically.
  • Teams record their one day catch on the provided catch report which is provided to the Tournament Committee.
  • In the case of a tie, the team that caught their final fish first is declared the winner. For example, if two teams each caught 12 fish each, the team that caught their 12th fish first, as verified by the photo of their fish, is the winner.
  • First, second, and third place teams must provide time stamped photos of their catches in order to claim their prize.
  • All anglers must comply with all federal and state laws and regulations concerning inshore fishing. Anglers may keep any legally permitted take for food fare.
  • At least 10 teams must register by 5 pm May 20, 2024. In the event there are less than 10 teams, the tournament will be canceled and registration fees will be refunded.
  • Entry fee: $100/team

Angling Methods

  • Rod and reel only (any tackle is permitted)
  • Any bait may be used.
  • Assisting the angler is permitted for younger anglers.

Tournament Committee

The Tournament Committee will examine all results and determine the winners of the competition. All anglers are on their honor to comply with the rules of the tournament but any found to be cheating are subject to disqualification by the Tournament Committee.
