    Answers to questions?

    1. Why are there boundaries? It's a big ocean, just fish inside the bourndaries.

    2. Why 36 inch max on tarpon? We need you to release the fish unharmed.

    3. How does this work? Easy, we meet at Haulover at 3:45 on Saturday Sept 20th. You fill out a entry form and pay $50. You go fishing with a special object and digital camera. When you catch an eligible fish you measure it, photo it then release it. Make sure to right down the info on your score card. At 1 am we meet at Haulover to turn in score cards.

    4. What do I win, 1st place gets 70% of the total tournament money. 2nd place gets 20% of the tournament money. 3rd place gets 10% of the tournament money.

    5. What if there is a tie, The winner will be based on time at check in. So, if you check in at 12:05 with 100 points and someone else turns in his/her card at 12:30 with 100 points the person who checked in at 12:05 wins.
