Yep same here, I'm boatless and the odds are against a yak angler in this series.

Alex, I'm not hating on these rules, but from a kayak perspective it really a boat tournament.

Entry fee will be $100 per team. Teams will consist of one or two anglers per vessel. Kayak anglers will be a one man teams, unless it's a two person kayak. All fish will be weighed on the same scale. I do not plan to have a weigh master. This will be a winner takes all format. This series is really more for fun and bragging rights, with some monetary incentive.

@ if this was $50/team, the participation would increase.

A single man kayak should be less than a boat, statistically...the yak anglers should never win this series, can't cover the same amount of water as a boat in the same given time period.


All fish weighed must be inside the Florida redfish slot. Each team may weigh in two legal redfish and the team with the heaviest total weight wins.

Favors a boat team over a single yaker as a boat team has 4 fish to choose from.


All fish must be weighed in alive or the team is subject to a half pound per dead fish penalty.

VERY hard for a yaker to keep 2 reds alive all day.

But, it sounds like a blast, good luck to all you guys.

1 last question...can someone join the series half-way thru or at any time?

Nope. Just offering an option. Cull permits and insurance? Just wondering because we had to have them. Also making a kayak division separate from the boat division will draw in more kayaks.

Yeah, it does stack the deck for boat anglers, but I really just included kayaks because I knew some people would be interested either way, I could be wrong though. I'm not trying to make any kind of grand tournament series, just something for fun and to get the competitive juices flowing. So, to answer your question you can join in at anytime through the year. I'm not planning on a ''team of the year'' deal. If this generates enough interest it's possible it could develop into something bigger and better, but for right now it's really just a group a people fishing for the biggest two redfish.

This not an organized group/club, business or event(s), so my insurance provider said neither is required by law. I made sure I checked before I started anything. I'm sure if this grows into something, I'll be required to. As far as a kayak division, at the moment this is at an infant stage. It's possible in the future, if this year pans out.

Guess that rules out an awards banquet.
