    SWFL Gheenoers May Tournament/Event

    Saturday May 8th out of D&D Bait and Tackle in Matlacha

    $25 per boat for tournament, but feel free to join us anyways if you aren't interested in fishing the tournament.

    Our rules:
    There are no fishing boundaries for this event, but all participants must meet at D&D in Matlacha at 6:30am on Saturday November 21st. All captains will draw a playing card which must be photographed with each fish “weighed in”.

    Schedule: everyone will be released to fish based on playing card format discussed earlier in the forum. Only exception is if you want to launch your boat at the Lee County or Cape Coral Boat Ramps you may leave after checking in. Weigh in is 2:30pm, DON’T BE LATE OR YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED!!

    Slam format: largest snook, redfish and trout combination in inches wins (no slot limits).
    Photo each fish against a measuring stick with your assigned playing card, and then release each fish. Largest fish (1) of each of the slam species counts toward total. Slam wins over highest total inches with a missing fish species.

    Cameras: Digital: if you have a digital, we will add up inches right then at the end of the day.
    Disposable: if you have a disposable or other and say you have more inches, you have to tell us the exact total inches (write them down), then we will wait for you to post pics on here and you can claim your winnings. I will hold winnings until you post proof.

    Side pool: we will do a side pool for a mystery fish $5 for whoever wants in, winner takes all. Mystery fish will be drawn out of a hat the morning of the tournament. Potential fish include: sheepshead, flounder, lady fish, jack crevalle or mangrove snapper. We will draw three species and write them down in order drawn, just in case one (or two) of the mystery fish species aren't caught.

    Bait: anything you want, fish must be line caught though. No netting fish (other than bait) and no snags (you’re all on the honor system there). Clean catches only please.


    Everyone please confirm with me that you will attend. If you forget to call or PM, that’s fine. Don’t think you can’t still show up. I just want to get a general idea of how many boats we are going to haveeach time, so I can tell the operators of D&D ahead of time.
