Default GCLC / FWC Lionfish Derby

Hi PFF spear-fishermen/ladies,

I haven't seen any discussion of the GCLC / FWC Lionfish Derby on this forum and was wondering if any of you will be participating this year.

when you hear of numbers like $50k spent on putting on this "show" and such a low percentage of it actually goes to the PARTICIPANTS then you add to that the Geniuses want to keep your catch (a $5 per pound fish) I think everyone knows why there's no participation.

You don't ever let anybody have any fun

But I'm with you. I love shooting lionfish, but I'm not going to enter a tournament where you have to hand over your catch.

What do they do with all that submitted lionfish anyway?

Is that the tournament where you have to PAY to let them keep your catch?

I just checked .... this is not correct.
All fish brought in to compete for regular prizes will remain property of the divers.
There is a special raffle that you CAN enter - if you wish to leave your fish.
Sooo.... you can win regular prizes AND keep your fish + you can leave your fish if you want..... and have a chance at extra prizes.

Please read the rules if you have any questions.

My buddy just sent me a picture of the board. Over 8,000 lion fish brought in this weekend. Great start.

Could you post the picture of the board so we can see who brought in all those fish? Anyone have pictures of the 8k fish that were counted in?

Did anyone on this forum participate?

Yes there many PFF'ers involved with this event.
I enjoyed Sat and Sun, ate allot of Lionfish prepared many different ways.

Fried, Grilled, Dip, and then several dished created by a large hoist of Celebrity Chefs, from as far away as New Orleans.

I saw one boat bring in over 1,100.

It was great event. Attendance was high, and many attendees knew little of Lionfish. All information booths were very busy.
