Weigh-in docks are only open:

        Sunday from 12:00 PM to 3:30 PM at Burton Chace Park. The big fishing tackle raffle starts at 4PM.

Note to Captains: Judge your travel time well. Remember 8 knots in the outer channel, 5 knots and "No Wake" inside the harbor. You need time to tie up and transport your fish up the dock. Judges exceptions may be made by the Rules Committee for extenuating conditions.

25% bonus for Live Released fish. PLEASE keep fish alive with lots of fresh sea water.

We encourage use of IGFA recognized & approved fishing techniques with one exception, we allow the use of a trap hook on the halibut rig. The trap hook must be embedded into the tail of the bait. We strongly suggest that anglers use circle hooks as much as possible to reduce damage to fish being released
