Default Official PFF Spearfishing Derby 2014 Thread

These are the current standings for the 2014 PFF Spearfishing Derby



https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...rive_web#gid=0



In this thread, you can opt in on the tournament and post your catches for the 2014 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 this thread https://www.pensacolafishingforum.com...264793/index2/

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, 2014 - Dec 31, 2014
  • 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
  • Entries from other states are fine as long as you're abiding by the laws of the state you're diving/launching from.
  • 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.

Went out 2-8-14 with Billybob+, Critterfl, and Miller time.

Here's my entries for the trip:

Lionfish: 1.58 lbs

Shovelnose lobster: 1.02

Trigger fish: 8.32

Total Lionfish was 28. In the picture there are only 20, that's because I gave 8 away to millerTime before the photo (witnessed by Billybob, Critterfl, and Millertime)

FOUL! FOUL!!! I think James Grabbed MY Lionfish!!! (just kidding) we had a great trip...considering we left the boat shed with four wheels and made it to the Tom Thumb for gas with only THREE!!

what should've been a 9:00AM launch time, turned into an 11:30 launch time! oh well, we still got to go! had a great day but horrible results fishwise! Nice meeting MillerTime!

you know, of ALL the dives we made, I'd say 98% or better of the fish we saw were either 1) Red Snapper and 2) lionfish!

If the feds don't do anything to control the Red Snapper overpopulation, I think it's safe to say, Lionfish will be an insignificant footnote.

AA, I know Lionfish are just an "oh by the way" fish but did you take a count on your numbers?

Here's my entrees:

1.56 # Lionfish (danged you AA)
1.56 # Almaco Jack
1.47 # Lionfish ( again I curse you AA)
2.69 # Mangrove Snapper ( and a curse out to SWD too)
and are you ready for this????


1.26# MINGO!!! ( who'd ever thunk I'd have stooped to shooting lionfish and mingos!

dang'ed its tough out there to find gamefish!

Toner! Make sure you get a picture on a scale for it to count. I'll give this one to ya, but only because I plan to shoot a bigger one.

Future posts should include a pic of the fish on a certified scale to count.
