Second place will be for the boat that catches the longest striped bass (regardless of the total number).
Third place will be for the boat that catches the shortest striped bass (regardless of the total number).

Participants at all levels are encouraged to pre-register and pre-pay prior to the tournament, you can pre-register online @ or at Oakwood B&T. Registration the morning of the event will be available at Oakwood Bait and Tackle, Hammonds Fishing Center and Little Hall Park. To be eligible for the awards/prizes, registrants must be at the weigh-in at Little Hall Park and must have fished the event. Non-participation in the tournament will result in disqualification from prize eligibility.
First place will be determined by the total number of samples provided. Second and Third place (i.e. longest and shortest fish) require documentation via photo verification. So anglers will need to supply their own measuring stick and cell/digital camera for verification. Length will be measured to the 1/4” and rounded down for any measures not meeting a full ¼” increment (i.e. a 28 and 3/8” fish will be recorded as 28 and ¼”) . Images that do not show the full length of the fish from nose to tail or are not legible will not be accepted for eligibility for second or third place trophy consideration. Any tie will be decided by coin toss.
