    ECRA Members & Non-Members 2 Things you Don't want to forget:


    1. It will cost $10.00 more to register if you wait until the Captains Meeting on Friday Night so Register Now!
    2. The cost of your dinner is included in your registration fee. You will have to provide the fish for your dinner and if your spouse or family members join you at the awards dinner, you will need to be prepared to pay $7.50 each AND provide the fish for their dinner/dinners.


    We request that everyone pitch in on the tip for the servers & cook.


    We have some great prizes and door prizes lined up. You'll even get a Florida Sportsman Fishing Planner in your registration bag. That's an $8.95 value!

    So lets see, just for your registration fee, you get an 8.95 Book, a de-hooking tool, a venting tool, great coupons from retailers, your meal is paid for $7.50 value, and you get a chance at winning a private reef!

    The sea conditions look favorable so...What are you waiting for???

    Question Weather & Tournament

    Plan B for right this minute is to wait 15 minutes and see if the weather forcast changes since we do live in Florida.

    If the weather is unsafe, we will re-schedule the tournament. That will be announced at the Capt. meeting and posted on the forum if it becomes necessary to re-schedule.

    Unfortunately, the Red Snapper Season in Federal Waters Closes at 12:01 AM August 5th meaning the last real day to catch RS in Fed Waters is August 4th.

    Weather Update:

    In the event that storms or rough water conditions make venturing out of the pass or going offshore unsafe, we will re-schedule the tournament.

    (5' seas are unsafe for most boats registered in our Tournament.)

    As of this minute, the tournament is still on because the weather may change between now and tomorrow night. Keep your fingers crossed!

    A determination will be made at the Capt. Meeting.
