Who's up for it? Looking at February 9th...

It's about fishing, lying, trashtalk and comraderie... not necessarily in that order...

Basic rules... $20.00 per boat, most fish win. We will check fish by taking pictures of the tail spots of each fishon a digital camera.

This is the 4th year...

Past Winners...

2005 Got Away 7 fish

2006 Night Moves 10 fish

2007 Capt AHO 1,... yep,... ONE fish!!! (it was in March)

It's a FRIENDLY tourney, mean't to bring a little levity in our "tough to fish season"

Perhaps, this time, our TRASH TALKING CHAMP might even compete!!!:shedevil:shedevil:banghead:banghead:banghead:doh:doh:doh

T-shirts MIGHT be included...

I am in!! Got a few questions though. Do the fish have to be slot reds or are any redfish going to count?? If there is more than one person fishing on the same boat do all the fish count together or will they count individually??? Are there any boundaries to limit the area to be fished?? And if the fish count individually between two people on the same boat that both want the bragging rights do they both need to pay the entry fee or will the $20 per boat still apply?? Thanks for any info you can give me. I look foward to the event!

Here are last year's rules... They'll stay pretty much the same this year.

1. Please check in with the "...Got Away" or jim t either in person, by phone, or VHF 68 cell phone 525-1859

Fishing starts at 8:00 am. I'll be near the south cut at Fort McCrae until then. Look for a 26' Shamrock with an upper steering station

2. ANY SIZED Redfish qualifies.

3. When you catch a Redfish give the "...Got Away" a call on VHF 68 or phone Jim at 525-1859.

a.) You will be given a 2 word code using the phonetic alphabet For instance, "DELTA ALPHA"

b.) Write the corresponding lettersD A on a 3 inch by 3 inch piece of paper

c.) Place that piece of paper on or near the fish and take a picture showing at least the

spots and tail and the letters large enough to read...

d.) Make sure you take the picture the same way for each fish (head left, tail right).

This way no one can take a picture of both sides of the tail.

e.) If you get a double hookup, ask for 2 letter codes and use one for each fish.

f.) in case of ties, the most number of spots on any one fish will decide it... so try to get a picture with as many spots as possible.

4. Phonetic Alphabet

A = AlphaN = November

B = BravoO = Oscar

C = CharlieP = Papa

D = DeltaQ = Quebec

E = EchoR = Romeo

F = FoxtrotS = Sierra

G = GolfT = Tango

H = HotelU = Uniform

I = IndiaV = Victor

J = JulietW = Whiskey

K = KiloX = Xray

L = LimaY = Yankee

M = MikeZ = Zulu

5. All boats must return to have their pictures of fish verified by 3:15 at Fort McCrae near the south cut.


6. If you want to add to the fun, if you find them thick, tell us where you are.!!!

And a sample picture...



Jim

Good questions... keep 'em coming!

PS... It'll be $20.00 PER BOAT!!! As many fisherman, as many lines as you like... total cost is still $20.00.

ALL ENTRY FEES will be paid out, NOBODY MAKES A $ ON THIS TOURNEY...

Basically it's a chance for ME to AGAIN claim to be the best Redfisherman in Pensacola!!!:moon:poke:poke:letsparty:letsparty

I have a suggestion Jim. How about when the boats registered they tell you how many anglers will be fishing and a letter code is issued to each one at the start at the race. This would speed up the process of getting the fish back into the water in a timely fashion to be revived to fight another day. Once the fish is photographed and released then the radio call would go out for another letter code. Just trying to save you some time and get'em back in before they expire unless of course one of these nuckleheads does happen to hook into a slot. Again just a suggestion and one mans opinion:moon

If Matt is cooking up some fish, I just might have to get out there just for the food. He cooked up the best trigger for us at the camp out.

If the weather will cooperate between now and then so I can get out and catch some fish, I will cook something up.
