(6)  Each week, we will update the Results page which can only be viewed by registered Captain/Team Leaders to keep track of what fish have been caught and by whom.  

(7)  Awards/Trophy Banquet will be in January or February at a Houston area restaurant (two tickets included in entry).


Tournament Weekends:  There will be two tournaments (4 weekends each) beginning in mid-late summer and stretching into the fall (Dates will be provided in your invitation).
Trophy Divisions:  Pro/Guide - Amateur - Fly Division.  A  Captain must register in either the Pro/Guide or Amateur divisions.  If  you fish fly, you can register in the Fly Division but also compete, at  your election, for the Pro/Guide or Amateur  artificial lure trophy (depending on who the registered captain happens  to be for the boat).  If you are a fly-fishing purest, you can stick to fly  only if you wish.

Trophies:  Each tournament will have trophies, please see the Rules page.

Entry Fee: $175.00 per Captain/boat entry for all eight  weekends of the tournament.  This includes two dinner tickets (extras can be purchased before the banquet).  Hats can be purchased at the banquet (limit numbers available).  We try and keep entry prices low enough to cover cost.  If there is a profit, it will be donated to tarpon research.
