Exclamation Southern Open Rule change!!

The Southern Open rules Commitee has decided to simplify the rules for all of our competitors.
We have decided to go with Federal Gulf of Mexico size limits on all eligible fish species.

The only two categories this will affect will be red grouper and snapper.

OLD RULES say your snapper must be 14 inches. NEW RULES dictate that your snapper must be 12 inches.(Red snapper must still be 16 inches per GOM Federal rules)
Old RULES say Red grouper must be 22 inches. NEW RULES dictate that your red grouper only need to be 20 inches. BTW... only one red grouper per person is allowed to be turned in per competitor out of your 3 fish potential aggregate!

We feel this small change will help to make the tournament run more smoothly and be much easier for everyone involved.
This change will also be announced at the captains meeting.


Remember to keep this in mind as well. Fish can and WILL shrink! If fish are presented to weighmasters that are 1 milimeter short of Federal size limits they will NOT BE WEIGHED!
Absolutely no exceptions!
Our weighmasters are extremely experienced.
Remember that law enforcement officials(plain clothes and/or uniformed) will most likely be in attendance.

It will be in your best interest as well as the image of spearfishing to follow the rules exactly as stated above.
Thanks!

Re: Southern Open Rule change!!

The question is: Are the scales big enough?

I hear the prize table is going to rock.
