Couple photos of the winners.

Those 100 pound stringers were absolutely nuts!

Seriously though... everyone who was there, please send me a note at info@sbfreedivers.com and let me know how we can improve the tournament for next year.
For starters, some of the comments I've already received are:
1) Have someone there to photograph all of the fish being weighed and get a pic of each person with their complete stringer;
2) Limit the catch to a maximum of 3 Yellowtail;
3) Coordinate dates so we are not on the same date as the OC Classic;
4) Make the rules to require all fish to be in the circle at 4:00pm, not just that people check-in.
5)Have someone who is designated as the cook so that nothing gets overcooked (or any corn-on-the-cob gets burnt ); and
6) Make sure we set up camp next to a fun Asian family again!!
.... all comments welcome .... also, let me know if you liked the "no a.m. check-in" requirement.
I am also considering moving the check-in to a park that has better parking and is maybe more centrally located to where we are all diving.
Anyway... this is your club ya'll... I'm just the help. Feedback needed...

Re: Santa Barbara Freedivers 3rd Annual Scramble Meet & BBQ

Nice shooting' guys, I hope to dive in this comp next year. Maybe after each tourney start a new thread (or update one) with the results including details about the fish shot, it would be cool to see what you guys shot!

Re: Santa Barbara Freedivers 3rd Annual Scramble Meet & BBQ

Limit of 3 YT!? No way! If you can pull in 5 YT in a (short) day, you deserve the trophy. Also, didn't the winner shoot 2 seabass and 3 YT?

Re: Santa Barbara Freedivers 3rd Annual Scramble Meet & BBQ

Eric, our FB page has details first. I try to post there first, and then InstaGram. Spearboard is only our 3rd/4th social media platform since many people are not on here.
Bowxe, noted... Thx buddy!!

Re: Santa Barbara Freedivers 3rd Annual Scramble Meet & BBQ

I know he weighed in 2 seabass, but I don't know if he used both toward his 5 fish total. He also shot 4 YT

Re: Santa Barbara Freedivers 3rd Annual Scramble Meet & BBQ

What a great day we had on Saturday, I'm still in disbelief over what I saw. I would never had imagined that four divers would bring in 5 fish each and three of them would weigh in stringers over 100 pounds. That is just phenomenal!

Congrats to Eric Hodge who took the Comp with 3 yellowtail and 2 WSB, even tho he actually shot 4 YT and 2 Seabass. Unreal day in the water dude!

When MJ and I left the island with a fish bag that was absolutely stuffed to the brim and required four guys to lift, I thought I had the comp in the bag. Turns out, I only weighed in 86 pounds of YT and placed 4th!

I'm super stoked on the solid showing, way to go everyone who competed! And big thanks to J for doing all the hard work to host the event, it turned out awesome and was a ton of fun

Re: Santa Barbara Freedivers 3rd Annual Scramble Meet & BBQ

And for the record...

If Truckstop Tony thinks that weighing in 5 YT is unfair, he should be dropped from the club!

Ha

Re: Santa Barbara Freedivers 3rd Annual Scramble Meet & BBQ

Had some of you guys ask about the mix I used to marinade the YT and Halibut at the BBQ. It was a made up mix that I did on the fly and it is listed below. I mixed it up in an extra large pot that I use to steam my Lobster and then slowly placed/mixed in about 15 lbs of YT and Halibut in generous-sized portions and then topped with 4 YT collars cut in half. So... cut the portions down to make less obviously... I let it marinade for about 30 hours and turned it over a few times before it went on the grill.
1.5 Cups Olive Oil Mayo
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1/8 Cup Sesame Seeds
~1 Tbsp Fresh-squeezed Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp Bragg's Amino
1/4 Cup Italian Dressing
~2 tsp Fresh-ground Black Pepper
~1 tsp Fresh-ground Sea Salt
2 tsp Wasabi
1/8 Cup Coconut Oil
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup (from my family's farm in Ohio)
1 Cup of Raw/Sliced Ginger (from Lazy Acres) <--- this is key!!
