I dunno,
throw out some suggestions.
I figured bragging rights for all of 2015 was enough but if everyone
wants to chip in we could take the "entry fee" and buy plaques for each category
or something.
do the rules sound good to you?
additions?? deletions?
We have 2 weeks to get it nailed down.

I'd say if it's a legal game fish, give it a division.
division for Red Snapper, Cubera Snapper, Lane Snapper, etc.

you could hunt all year and kill a Lane that might only weigh 5# but it'd be respectable for a lane and within the first 5 minutes of Red Snapper, it'd be knocked completely off the leader board if it wasn't in a unique category.

Same with grouper, Gag, Red, Scamp, Warsaw.

same with Scamp, a 15# scamp would be quite respectable, but a 15# Gag, I'd hope wouldn't even finish in the top 5

Spadefish, Sheepshead, yep and yep and yep, even shark if someone has the cajones to shoot one! (if it's legal, don't know about that)

Baracuda too, if they're legal to shoot.

I just made a quick online spreadsheet that we can use to list the leaderboard. I just started by listing available game species based on the myfwc.com quick chart. I got rid of those that didn't apply or were not legal to spear. Feel free to suggest additions or deletions to this list. It might be a good start. This way, it will be easy to analyze points and rankings etc.

With the link to the spreadsheet, anybody can view it. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...3c&usp=sharing

Sick Puppy Spearfishing is in.

I vote yes on the picture at a tackle shop, hanging on a scale. Beyond that, pretty much honor system.

I like the spread sheet idea.

Just my two cents, if you're going to do anything beyond bragging rights, you need a 3rd party un affiliated judge to moderate the whole thing. Again, this is just an opinion.

I'm feeling generous AA, since that gun is doing nothing but collecting dust, I'll give ya $75 but act quick, my Christmas Charitable giving expires after Dec 25th, offer going down to $50!


All kidding aside, you're welcome on our boat anytime we can make the schedules happen.
