2022 Tournament Rules & Information

The tournament will be held on Saturday, June 25th.

Each team can be comprised of up to 4 team members and each person must be registered. This is a members only tournament, so at least one of the registered participants must be an employee of a company that is a member of the RGVBA. Only registered team members may be on a boat. If anyone that is not registered is found to be on a boat fishing, that boat will be disqualified. Fishing with a guide is not allowed - if you are found to be fishing with a guide your team will be automatically disqualified. All participants must have a legal fishing license as required by Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Fishing hours will be from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday, June 25th. You may leave from any location that you would like but can not start fishing until 6:00 am.

Weigh-in will be at Jim’s Pier from 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm on Saturday, June 25th. Teams must return to the weigh-in area BY BOAT and no later than 3:00 pm Saturday. All registered team members need to be on the boat and present at weigh in. Any boat not at the dock by 3:00 pm will be automatically disqualified.

All decisions by weigh-master will be FINAL. You must weigh-in all of your fish at once and may not return with additional/different fish. Any fish considered altered by the weigh-master will disqualify the team from the event.

Awards will be announced following the closing of the weigh-in deadline at 3:00pm at Jim's Pier.

Fish will be scored by weight, with the heaviest fish winning. In case of a tie in weight, the length of the fish will serve as the tie-breaker. Should the fish be the same length as well, the winner of the tie will be decided by the weigh-in time - the first fish weighed in will win. All decisions by the weigh master are final.

There will be a mandatory captains meeting Friday, June 24th, at 6pm at the Longboard Bar & Grille on SPI.
