1. All scoring will be done on the Angler’s honor. Each angler will download the Fish On app to track all catches. Catches are to be uploaded to the app no later than 5:30 pm.

2. Minimum Size - In order to be recorded as catches, certain species of fish must have a minimum length as outlined on the Fish On app. Only five fish per species may be scored per angler.

3. Point System - Points will be awarded at the point value given to each species as noted in the rules on the app 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 towards the total. A species bonus of 50 points will be added to the day’s total for each different qualifying species scored above two species. For instance, 3 species = 150 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. Eligible Species: Trout, Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Cobia, Grouper, Snapper, Bonefish, Permit, Sailfish, Dolphin, Wahoo


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.

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

Yes, see the registration form for Non-fishing Guest ticket which will include the Captain’s Meeting dinner on Friday night and the Awards Banquet on Saturday. Only those paying the full registration fee will receive tournament shirts and be eligible for the raffle.

Who is eligible to fish this tournament?

Owners of Maverick, Hewes, and Pathfinder boats and their guests.

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 area.
