I'm gonna wait until the Captains party to decide. I talked to one of the tournament directors and he said that the tournament would go rain or shine. I asked if it would be postponed if we were in a small craft advisory and he told me no. I was told it will only be postponed for tropical storm warning or above. He said they fished it last year in 6-8' seas. Screw that, there is a thin line between fun and stupid.

I'll ask the wife if I'm allowed ;) I'll beg and if all goes well, I'll be there at least one day!

edit: Nevermind. Just read the rules and the Captain Meeting is mandatory. FWB is 2 hours away and I work the 15th.

Separate prize fund for boats and kayaks. Purse based on number of entries.

Yes, 50% of the prize pot for that species. There are four species - King, Red snapper, trout and redfish. So you have two shots at an inshore and two for offshore winner (and TWO days to weigh-in).

Aquaholic, the entry fee goes up to $60 if you wait for the capt meeting. Also, since there are inshore species you can still fish on the lee side inshore if the surf is too bad to get out. As with the GCKFA tourney, all prizes will be awarded even if there are no entries. So come fish with us and you might get a prize even if you can't get offshore.
