Have It Your Way — Pick Your Day, Pick Your Quarry

Here’s a new, three-day tournament flexible enough for even the busiest Ocean Reef schedule —

Fish any three days between March 1 and April 15, your choice

Each day of the three you choose, report that you are fishing any time before you go out — send advice of your fishing by email to — and follow up at the end of the day with your results. 

Choose your category, Inshore or Offshore. If you chose Inshore, three fish count: bonefish, permit and tarpon on inshore flats and creeks: 300 points for fish caught on fly and 100 points for those caught on spinning tackle.

If you go Offshore, it’s sailfish with two ways to score: fly (300 points) and spin (100 points). Kites are allowed.

Inshore or Offshore, email your results the same Fish any three days that suit and accumulate points. Feeling lucky? Enter both and fish three days of each. 

Top boat in each category takes the prize of $500.

Keep all fish in the water for release!

No fuss, no muss — just fishing.
