Default 2015 official pff spearfishing derby

CLICK HERE for the 2015 PFF Spearfishing Derby Standings

NOTE: THE SPREADSHEET HAS BEEN OPTIMIZED FOR 2015 SO NOW THE "CURRENT STANDINGS" ARE TRUSTWORTHY

In this thread, you can opt in on the tournament and post your catches for the 2015 Spearfishing Derby.

Try to keep the posts specific to reporting catches so this thread doesn't become off topic. No "nice catch!" posts please. You can "like" a post on this thread and that will not waste space.

Any other discussions should be held in another thread

Rules are the same as last year
  • These are the rules agreed upon in earlier threads. I am not "putting on" a tournament, but I will monitor this thread and update the spreadsheet when people report their catches.
  • Jan 1, 2015 - Dec 31, 2015
  • ALL FISH SHOULD BE PHOTOGRAPHED ON A CERTIFIED SCALE WITH THE WEIGHT VISIBLE.
  • If, for some reason, you can't photograph it on a scale, have a witness vouch for you, it's fine. It's a just for fun bragging rights tourney.
  • Each available fish has 5 spots on a 5-4-3-2-1 point system
  • Fisherman should declare themselves competitors prior to posting an entry. Simply post in this thread (or the unofficial thread) that you want in.
  • Fish must be witnessed by one other person (not the actual shot but by someone as or after the fish is landed).
  • Total points for all species at completion wins
  • No powerheads
  • No rebreathers
  • Fisherman must have at a minimum face submerged to count.
  • No nets except for legal netting of spiney lobster
  • Exact weights are tie broken with first entered
  • If you manage to get a hard to differentiate species of grouper/snapper etc...(e.g. Cubera snapper, black grouper) be sure to take good photographs of it's distinguishing marks.

    New rules for 2015:
  • Travel Radius for Maximum Travel Distance: 50 NM East and 50 NM West of Pensacola Pass but with no Southerly Limit
  • Divers must follow Florida Seasons/Limits regardless of diving location

to eliminate some of the extra categories can I suggest we remove the following categories:

Lesser Amberjack: hard to tell the diff and with this being a slot species it may get people in trouble....and they are generally DEEP
Snowy: if someone shoots a snowy that would be insane
Yellowfin grouper: are pretty rare up here?
Yellowmouth: are managed the same as scamp and most people cant tell the difference
Mutton Snapper: wont find them
Schoolmaster: wont find them
Wenchmen: wont find em/wont shoot them

Lets delete the snapper above and if someone does shoot them we can include in OTHER? same with the deleted grouper?

I'll start the show...


Shot with Toner out of Destin. I'll go ahead and add it to the 2nd place spot, because I know Toner's is a bit bigger

Also, I forgot to take a picture of it, but I shot a daily total of 25 Lionfish. Not sure how much he was paying attention, but Toner was there to witness the haul.

43.5# AJ...
Full Disclosure. GB Bait and Tackle said their scale wasn't working so all I had to weight it on was my bathroom scale but it's accurate to within 1/2 pound at Dr's office and Publix. Don't know if we can count it or not. S.W. Dave witnessed taking of fish and weight. taken Jan 19th
