Exclamation Big Fish are coming in to the Big Bang! Open - Be there at the Weigh-in Sunday!

Just got a field report with a visual of some big fish coming into the weigh-in on Sunday.


How is this for a BBO keeper?

You can come and watch all the cool fish roll in - Meal Tickets are $20

Well, I guess that puts the 14" mangrove I shot out of the running. There's still tomorrow.

Ah, but remember, that big fish above means little to the ability to get to the prize wall. If, and that is a big if, this fish is the largest smapper (I already know it is not), he would get a nice trophy for biggest snapper.

Realize, that this is an aggregate tournament where your aggregate score determines your sequence to get to the prizes.

So, keep chaulking up the points in your aggregate score. Good Luck!

Re: Big Fish are coming in to the Big Bang! Open - Be there at the Weigh-in Sunday!

Below are photos of the two top trophies for the 2010 Big Bang! Open.

I also show similar trophies fron the Key Largo Open that Len Pep took photos of.

For the Open competition, there will be a total of ten (10) Trophies up for grabs:

1.) 2010 Big Bang! Open Winner

2.) Best Freediver

3.) Largest Grouper

4.) Largest Snapper

5.) Largest Hogfish/Flounder

6.) Largest Trigger/Sheepshead

7.) Largest Jack, Cobia

8.) Best Female Diver

9.) Best Junior Diver

10.) Best Boat


In addition to the above prizes and trophies for the 2010 competition only, there will be special prizes and trophies for the top 30 participants best cumulative series scores over three years of Spear Wars Blue Storm Tournaments including 2008 + 2009 + 2010.

For purposes of this calculation, your 2010 points will be doubled. Thus, hunting for two days and doubling the earned points will properly align this 2010 event with the prior years. To qualify for this special multi-year competition, you must be registered in the 2010 BBO and you must weigh-in at least one fish and be present in person to receive your trophies and/or prizes.

There will be a total of three (3) Trophies up for grabs:

1.) 2010 Big Bang! Series Overall Winner

2.) 2010 Big Bang! Series Best Freediver

3.) 2010 Big Bang! Series Best Female Diver

Focus on your 20 points per fish in each category - if you get a big fish, then great, but the prizes are won by aggregate points.

I've never thought to ask this until i saw the trophy, but what are the two things that cross in the spearboard logo? Fountain pens?

Nice two cuberas, the one by his feet is a healthy size too!

The one at his feet was the bigger. Check out the weigh-in photos when up.

Those are strange kill spikes in my avatar Steve.

That is not the spearboard logo.

We kept the one below that Scott had designed many years ago.
