    Default The 2015 Tournament Season Kickoff Event-Florida Freeshafters Spring Garbage Can Slam

    The Florida Freeshafters will kickoff the 2015 tournament season with the Spring Garbage Can Slam on Sunday March 29th. The rules could not be any simpler. No captain's meeting. Begin shooting at dawn after leaving the port of your choice on Sunday, and be in the weigh in line by 5PM with your largest single legal grouper, snapper, hogfish, sheepshead, and grunt. They are weighed in a garbage can, and one point is given for each pound of fish. Highest three aggregate totals win. Cash prizes......1st place takes $150, 2nd takes $100, and 3rd takes $50. In addition there will be an optional calcutta where the heaviest legal fish (does not necessarily have to be one of the five garbage can eligible species e.g amberjack, black drum barracuda, cobia etc) takes 100% of the calcutta money. Each competitor will receive a ticket for a dive and non-dive related prize raffle after the weigh-in.

    The weigh-in will be at the new location of Get Hooked Grill (Get Hooked Grill - Almost Waterfront Restaurant and BarGet Hooked Grill | Almost Waterfront Restaurant and Bar) at the Port Hudson Marina. Food and drink specials after the weigh-in TBA. The pre-party and registration will be at the Sunlake Beef O' Brady's located at 18835 State Road 54, Lutz FL 33558 just east of the Veteran's Expressway on Wed March 25th beginning at 7PM. Tournament registration is $50, and includes a tournament t-shirt. Part of the proceeds will benefit Multiple Sclerosis. You can also register via Paypal (see attached flyer for Paypal address). The optional calcutta entry is $10 winner take all.

    Keep checking in on this thread for tournament updates. Hope to see everyone there.

    If your doing spearfishing tournaments for profit, you may wanna invest in a calculator. The person that has the most fun wins....I won one once...

    The club will have a beer bucket bar tab opened at 7pm at the Sunlake Beef O' Brady's pre-party for registered competitors so get there early to get it while it lasts!
