Safety should always be the first priority and is the responsibility of the Captain/Owner. Weather conditions, the capability of your vessel & crew should always be the determining factor as to “weather” or not your vessel leaves the dock on any given day. If in doubt, keep the dock lines tied to the dock and start the blender!

Shoot-Out Notes:
Clubs may be added or subtracted from the Shoot-Outs based on their availability to fish against the Freeport Tuna Club. Only the three heaviest fish from each club will be submitted for competition. Entries must be submitted on an official club weigh slip and must be handed to a Shoot-Out Committee member.
