Tournament Divisions: SLAM- 1st, 2nd, 3rd

Slam division is total length of three fish, one of each species, (Speckled Trout, Southern Flounder, and Red Drum). Catching all species is favored over length. For example, if an angler catches one Red Drum at 20” and no other species, they will be beat by an angler that catches a 5” trout, a 5” flounder, and a 5” drum. Even though the first anglers total length is 20” and the second anglers total length is 15”, the second angler wins because they caught all three species. You can only place in the slam once. No double-dipping. Fish submitted for the Slam cannot be submitted for the individual categories. Catch submissions will be automatically allocated by the director for the highest possible winnings.

Individual- (Flounder, Speckled Trout, Drum) 1st , 2nd , 3rd

Fish that do not qualify for placement in the slam division will be automatically distributed for placement in the individual divisions. You can only place once in each of the two individual divisions. If you place first in the Trout division, you can still place in the Drum division, but you cannot place second or third in the Trout division.

Sea Monster

The sea monster division goes to the angler that submits the most unique fish caught outside of the tournament species. The winner of this division is chosen by the tournament director. If you catch something interesting or different, submit it!
