I forgot to mention my team and I plan to win all categories except flounder (I hate starring at sand) so if you enter just need to look for flounder :-)

They did well. They took 1st and 2nd largest lionfish. My 12-year-old took 3rd. They won a bunch of other fish categories. My son and I won the most lionfish prize.

We had 7 spots on the board between 3 of us but found out when they started giving the prizes that you can only place one time ! Not per category just one time so we lost out on 4 places we had 1st Amberjack, 1st grouper ,2nd and 3rd snapper, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd lionfish so we just ended up with 3, 1st places oh well I guess we know for next year

You know, you've been killin' bunches of those 30+ pound AJ. you need to add them (the ones you've killed) to the Derby...you never know, they might stick a place...unlike the optimist, you can have multiple places on the Derby Board....I think???

don't be gettin' mad a me at the end of the year when I take 3rd, 4th and 5th with fish smaller than some you didn't even enter

I saw MillerTime there and asked where you were, figured I'd introduce myself but he said you guys had trouble you were resolving.

hope all is well...

Yep I pulled a Billy Bob and lost a trailer tire while in tow the bad part was I had no idea I lost it until we were almost to the launch it was still dark out and the odd thing was we never felt it fall off we drove 20 miles with 3 tires so we launched and went diving I called the wife she was lucky enough to find the wheel and tire down the road about a mile from the house and brought it to the launch

Toner, they put stephen27's snapper under rod and reel by mistake. It never made it to the board. I was worried (due to that) that they were really messing up the final numbers. It took me half way through the awards to figure out what was going on. Very strange.
Anyway, congrats to you guys for taking 3 1st place.
I was hoping we could meet, but truth be told, I was exhausted. Hoping for rain so we wouldn't have to wash the boat.
We put 5 on the board with one knocked off, and one being rod and reel. Stephen27's black snapper was a stud.
Did I count right, there were only four boats spearing?
