Event Details


This is an invitational tournament with teams receiving an application to participate in the tournament. Acceptance of the application is at the sole discretion of the tournament organizers. A team shall consist of a minimum of two (2) anglers and a suggested maximum of five (5) anglers representing their qualifying tournament team. There is no limit to how many anglers a team can register. A maximum of five (5) anglers can fish on the boat each day. At least one (1) person on the team has to have been on the original team of the qualifying tournament they are representing.

The entry fee of $13,750 provides entry for one team of up to (4) registered anglers. Only five (5) anglers may be registered for any one fishing day. Only registered anglers, captains and mates will be allowed on the boat. In the event there are more than five anglers on the team, anglers may be rotated daily. In the event anglers need to be rotated in, the team must deliver a list of anglers to the tournament director prior to the start of fishing, indicating who the anglers are for that given day. Teams are provided a registered tournament charter boat, captain and mate. Registered charter boat captains or mates cannot be registered tournament anglers. Teams are not allowed to replace registered charter boat captains, mates or charter boats provided by the tournament. Teams are allowed to leader or handle their own fish releases or catches. Teams are not allowed to hire other boats, planes or helicopters to find fish or assist them in any way in catching or releasing fish. Registered anglers may not draw chartered boats in which they have ownership or any other interest. Costa Rica regulations require that everyone on the boat have a fishing license and each charter boat have a registered captain and mate for that fishing day. The tournament will provide fishing licenses for registered anglers. All teams must participate in the charter boat draw. Teams will fish on a different charter boat each day. In the event a boat is disabled, a replacement boat will be rotated in for that day and any lost fishing time will be compensated for at the discretion of the tournament organizers.
