Re: 2009 TBSC Winter Invitational Rules & Waiver

A 30-inch gag off the central west coast would be a nice fish so I don't think you're limited at all. In fact I would say you have a better chance of getting a bigger grouper on average than we would be able to get up here. All you need is two gags or blacks and one red or scamp to close out your grouper category.

Thanks for the PMs guys, if you have any additional questions by all means post em up.

I'd also like to thank Tony G., owner of Spearboard, for donating an entry fee to the 2009 SBO Blue Storm Classic for the prize table.

Re: 2009 TBSC Winter Invitational Rules & Waiver

So if you can shoot a fish in the keys and get to the weigh-in, does that mean this is a state wide tourny? There are no "no fishing" boundaries?

Correct. However, at least one representative diver from each boat must be at the “Diver’s Check In” meeting (to represent himself and those on his/her boat) to pick up mystery tickets, get any last minute rule changes, get the official tournament time and verify entry paperwork. The confirmation number is required to pick up any Early Registered participants paperwork at the “Diver’s Check In.” This “Diver’s Check In” will start at 7:00pm on April 3rd at Aquatic Obsessions Scuba, 6193 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, Florida 33710.
