I have been giving dates and species/payout alot of thought the past few days and i have come up with this.The species of course is redfish,specks,and flounder.I am thinking about december 1st and 2nd,i would like some feedback if this time works for everyone.Now for the payout,this is the way i would like it to go.1 redfish in the slot per angler,fish is measured from head to fork and 1 point per inch is given for just the reds,then every flounder and speck caught and measured within the regs is an additional point per fish.If we get enough anglers to enter i would like to have a 100 dollar prize for the largest speck,and largest flounder caught,then all the other goes to the winner of the overall event.I would like to have the measuring /finish each day at 5pm at shoreline park.The hours would be daybreak til 5pm both saturday and sunday.I would like to hear back from everyone intrested to see if this sounds ok with all that are intrested.I would like to make it a $25 dollar donation per angler so we can have a payout for the largest speck and flounder caught and then the winner take all the rest for the event win.Thanks for any input.

Freespool (10/22/2007)I agree with VS, consistently catching flounder is tough in december
and i think that the way he has the tourney set up, the flounder is going to be the 'make or break' point...

if i have this right....

redfish- points based on inches.... 26" redfish (since it will be damn near impossible to catch one 27" on the dot, and then he doesn't shrink) so, -- 26 points

Trout-- 1 point per fish 5 fish per person (five trout in decmber is cake... just hit any canal)

flounder.... hmmmm... this should get interesting

do you have to fish this tourney from a boat???... if not, count me and my buddy, Brad in.

Would everyone rather try to make the date november 24th and 25th? That was the original date i was shooting for but have several people that that can't make the december date.Give me your input for the 24-25 date.

croakerchoker (10/23/2007)i am in. can i fish from destin?
If you fished destin you would still need to make the 5pm measuring at shoreline so we have a public measure so there is no dispute.

I can't make it if it's Thanksgiving weekend. I'll be giving all my thanks somewhere else. The following weekend works best for me. So, that's my vote on that. otherwise, I'm up for pretty much what LC said. Shoreline 5:00 seems best for most.
