    Dang Slough.... You eat bait, I mean pinfish? I have caught some bigger than my hand. Never tried them though.

    I wonder what the attendance would be if the points were reversed? Cobia 1 and pinfish 20. I hope the kids make money for the trip :beer

    Once, in a little off the beaten path hotel in Southern Spain where Child Bride and I were spending the night, the hotel restaurant had "leeetle fried fish" on the menu, we tried it. I swear, we both decided we had eaten Pinfish for dinner. Kinda' boney.

    Big ole stingray wings chunked and fried taste like chicken fingers cooked in fish grease. Texture is very similar to breast meat chicken.

    Low score wins?
  • hooknredshooknreds Senior Member Redfish PointPosts: 2,461 Captain
    Prize money is awarded to 1st and 2nd place. Most points wins in. All fish must be legal size, 40 point bonus for the "trash can slam" which is the first 5 fish on the list. In the event of a tie, longest catfish wins.
    For a complete set of rules come to the captains meeting.

  • brotherinlawbrotherinlaw Senior Member Sylvester GAPosts: 3,904 Captain
