Tournament: 2008 Tampa Bay Winter Spearfishing Invitational

The Tampa Bay Spearfishing Club's 2008 Winter Invitational Spearfishing Tournament is just a few weeks away and is scheduled for March 22, 2008. The tournament is to be held at The Fort Desoto Boat Ramp (Saint Petersburg) Florida. Everyone is invited to participate. There is a discount and tournament t-shirt for early registration. Last years tournament raised almost $1,000 for the FRA and Ocean Pals and this years goal is to doubble those donations to divers rights groups. This is a combination big fish and aggragate style tournament. Last years prize table was stacked with over $8,000 in prizes which were randomly given out to the shooters. These prizes are given out randomly to all participants in a random drawing, not by how well you shoot. In fact, last year the second to the last place finisher received a brand new atomic regulator.
To find out more about this tournament go to www.tampabayspearfishingclub.org or call Aquatic Obsessions Dive Shop at 727-344-DIVE.

Cool Re: Tournament: 2008 Tampa Bay Winter Spearfishing Invitational

Thanks GR!

As we discussed, I set this up in its own section like last year and left a re-direct from the Gulf Coast section.

Bill Hardman is a good dude at Aquatic Obsessions and I hear really good things about this tournament.

Good Luck! Tony

Re: Tournament: 2008 Tampa Bay Winter Spearfishing Invitational

In case you all were wondering what the Largest Grouper looked like, here it is. I was spearing with Team Diversion in the lower MG. Yes we went all the way out there! Vis was an awsome 50'! This was a great time out there. I wish the sun would have been out a lot more. This fire truck went 30" and 15.4lbs gutted. Will

Nice work Will!

That is a beautiful red grouper and the water behind you looks great after the blow last week. I see you went for the viz way out. Sounds like the bet paid off. Congratulations! Tony
