October 13th- 15th!
Fishing can begin at 4 pm Friday October 12th. Measure-In deadline is Sunday the 15th, 2 pm.
One winner, winner take all. $20 "donation" (thats a nice legal term since this is a public forum) due by Thursday October 11th, 3 pm, goes to the "winner" with the largest shark measured by the deadline at fork length. ALL legal species of shark are eligable.
Measuring will be conducted at Fort Mcree.
There is not a mandatory "check-in" before the tournament, but be honest and do not drop a line in until the official start time.
If you are on a boat, please pay an entry fee for each person who will be fishing! Wether your kid, wife, lesbian lover, friend, or some homeless person you brought along to help with the gaff. If you are surf fishing, and have some of your buddies with you who will be manning a pole, please be fair and pay the entry fee for each participant.
Cookout sunday afternoon, hopefully some fried shark nuggets. Maybe saturday also if it turns out some of us can actually catch one of these things! A small portion (probably around $40) of the "donation" fee will be used for oil, propane, breading, and condiments. Receipts will be kept, I promise not to use it for beer money.
For a shark to win IT MUST BE MEASURED PUBLICLY at Fort Mcree. After that, you can keep the shark like a selfish bastard, or you can donate it to the cookout! After a shark is publicly measured, please do not bring any sharks the same size or smaller since there is no second place. Please follow Florida and Federal game laws as regards to bag limits ect. You can bring in one shark per day.
If you do not eat shark, please make sure to keep your eligable shark in good condition and cold on the way to Mcree. There will be many people who would love to take some home if we already have enough for the cookouts. PLEASE DO NOT WASTE THESE TASTY CRITTERS!
There are no angling rules other than abide by the laws. Everything else is captains choice, as regards angling methods and gear, firearms, ect. So please make sure you are aware of these laws. And yes, it IS illegal believe it or not to spearfish a shark, so I will not be attempting that.
This event is more for the purpose of having a dang good time and fryin up some shark on the beach with good friends and making more good friends than anything else. Please keep that in mind, and this will go smooth.

There are a ton of other rules that could be posted, but I think everybody knows what is ethical and proper and fair. Also mob riot will enforse any common sense rules. Such as if you bring a frozen shark you caught last month to the Measure-In, I think the mob riot will fix that stupidity. And they say you can't fix stupid!
There will be some people camping on Fort Mcree, and I will be bringing some firewood to keep a homebase fire going. I will also be taking a couple boatless anglers to McRee who will be surf fishing for the tournament.
IF YOU HAVE ROOM FOR 1 OR MORE TO TRANSPORT TO FORT MCREE TO SURF FISH AND CAMP SO THEY CAN BE PART OF THIS TOO, PLEASE SAY SO!!! Johnsonbeachbum has offered to transport people/ gear tents ect on his deck boat also! Sniper has also offered a ride. Boatless anglers, speak up if yer goin out to MCree!
Before the tournament, an official VHF channel will be announced.
If called for weather, it will be rescheduled for the following weekend.
I look foward to this, and meeting more of you!
And thanx wishiniwasfishin for kickstartin this thing!
And thanx to all those of you who offered to help with this too!
