Rules

Prize money will be awarded to the top three anglers for each species (Trout and Redfish). Fish are judged using an overall length measurement taken by the angler with the official tournament sticker ruler. Sticker rulers will be given to all entrants at morning check in. Anglers must have photographic proof of fish and the official sticker ruler to qualify. There is no minimum length requirement. Only one fish of each species is allowed. In order to be eligible to win the Grand Prize, anglers must catch and release both a trout and redfish. In the Grand Prize category, the overall length of the anglers’ redfish and trout will be combined. The longest overall combined length will win the $1500 Grand Prize. All anglers must launch from and return their paddle craft to the tournament event site: 500 Tom Warriner Blvd., Cocoa Beach, FL 32931. Anglers are welcome to fish anywhere in the Banana River Lagoon after launching from the event sight. Any aid from motorized or electric vessels/motors is prohibited and will result in immediate disqualification; pedal or paddle power only. Rod and reel fishing only; spearfishing, netting, etc. is not permitted. Interpretation and enforcement of these rules shall be left exclusively to the Tournament Director. In the event of a rule violation, the Tournament Director may impose such sanctions as deemed appropriate by him or her, including without limitation, disqualification, forfeiture of prizes, entry fee and prohibition from participation in future tournaments.
