RULES:

1. All scoring will be done on the Angler’s honor. Each angler will turn in a signed score card to a tournament official no later than 6:00 pm.

2. Minimum Size. In order to be recorded as catches, certain species of fish must have a minimum length as outlined on the score card. Only five fish per species may be entered each day of fishing.

3. Point System. Points will be awarded at the point value given to each species as noted on the scorecard and will be multiplied depending on the method of catch: bait X 1, artificial X 1.5, and fly X 2. Anglers may try to increase their point totals by catching multiple fish of the same species using different tackle, but only five fish per species will count toward the day’s total. A species bonus of 100 points will be added to the day’s total for each different qualifying species caught above two species. For instance, 3 species = 100 bonus points, 4 species = 200 bonus points, and so on.

4. Tackle. In the artificial and fly fishing categories, baits should be “pure lures.”

5. While catch and release is encouraged, it is understood that anglers may want to keep fish for the table; however, kept fish that do not comply with South Carolina’s size and limit regulations will not be counted for scoring. It is the angler’s responsibility to know the regulations.

6. Eligible Species: Trout, Redfish, Cobia, Sheepshead, Spanish Mackerel, Kingfish, Bluefish, Flounder

May I bring guests to the captain’s meeting and award banquets who don’t plan on fishing

Does this tournament have a cash payout?

No. Trophies will be awarded to the top lady angler, youth angler and overall top scorer. In addition, raffle tickets will be awarded to each angler in proportion to their overall score. (Higher score= more raffle tickets= greater chance to win to great raffle items.)

If I’m from out of town, how will I know where to fish and at what time according to the tides?

Local MBG Pro Staff members will be on hand at the captain’s meeting to discuss the where’s and how’s of fishing the Charleston area.

I don’t typically fish tournaments. Why should I fish this one?

We like to refer to these as Funamants. They are more about fun, family, good food and getting together with fellow MBG owners than competitive fishing. Every angler receives at least one raffle ticket and is eligible to win anything from Costa Sunglasses to fishing tackle.
