This looks like a fun tournament - especially trying to win the exact weight category. If you fish Patapsco area - this one is for you. Sure the LTJ guys could do well.

Rules
  • $40.00 for each individual fisherman.
  • Unlimited paid individual fisherman per boat with a minimum of 2 per boat.
  • Maximum of 2 rockfish per paid individual fisherman on a single boat.
  • Any legal method of catching fish is permitted. Observe all fishing and boating regulations as established by MD DNR and US Coast Guard.
  • Fishing boundaries: From Fort Smallwood Park to Fort Howard Park and north (NO FURTHER SOUTH, NO CHEATING, SOMEONE IS ALWAYS WATCHING).
  • CHECK- IN/START TIME - All boats MUST check in at the pontoon boat anchored in front of Point Pleasant Beach Bar (1750 Marley Ave, Glen Burnie, MD 21060) the morning of the tournament between 5:00am and 9:00am. If you do not check in between 5am and 9am, your boat will be disqualified from prize monies but still welcome to fish anyway. At that time, each participant will receive their tournament "all you can eat" buffet wrist bands. Shirts will be distributed upon each boats return to The Beach Bar.
  • CHECK OUT/FINISH TIME -all boats with fish to weigh in MUST check in by 4:00pm or be disqualified.
  • Do not bring alcohol or beverages onto the Point Pleasant Beach Bar Property. Drinks can be purchased inside the bar.
  • Prizes will be awarded based on the HIGHEST AVERAGE WEIGHT (see examples below) of rockfish for one boat. Highest Average Weight = Total rockfish weight for one boat / total creel limit for that boat.
  • EXAMPLE 1: Terry and Marty are fishing together on one boat. Both of them catch one fish each weighing 10 lbs. Their total weight is 20 lbs. and their creel limit for the boat is 4. So, their AVERAGE WEIGHT = 20 DIVIDED BY 4 = 5 LBS.
  • EXAMPLE 2: Terry, Marty and Steve are fishing together on one boat. All three of them catch one fish each weighing 5 lbs. Their total weight is 15 lbs. and their creel limit for the boat is 6. So, their AVERAGE WEIGHT = 15 DIVIDED BY 6 = 2.5 LBS.
  • All registration forms and entry fees received by September 15th will receive their T-shirts on the day of the tournament (Oct 3rd). For those registrations received after September 15th, your shirts may or may not be available on October 3rd. But I will get them to you ASAP.
NOTE: The rules are the same as last year. Highest average weight gives the tournament more participants on a boat without giving those boats with more than two participants an advantage. Remember, this event is intended to bring friends and family together all while enjoying a day on the water. Something that we all know Rick absolutely cherished.
Over the last three tournaments we have paid out $5,125.00 in prize money, and donated $3,000.00 to the Jeffrey Schmidt Scholarship Fund. We thank all of those who have participated in previous years and hope to have them and others join us again for a great day of fishing, family and friends.

Thank you,

This tourney turns the river into a madhouse bc of the limits on having to stay in the river. I made the mistake of fishing the same day as this 2 years ago not knowing it was going on and it was literally 300 boats between the Key Bridge and Ft Howard. Not saying it's a bad tourney, just be prepared to fight for space if your trolling.

Not sure where the crowd you saw came from but only about 40 boats fished this tournament last few years.

Might have been multiple tourneys running at the same time or a different weekend, can't remember that far back. I know there's a few that put the stipulation of staying in the river and it can turn into a madhouse.
