Flatsmasters Tournament #2

Backcountry Classic  Tournament- July 25, 2020

1 trout,1 Snook- All Baits are allowed

The tournament will be held on July25th

There has not been a decision on an "Official Capt Meeting" as of right now
We will make a decision as the date is closer.

Either way, We will still have a team check in on Friday night at Laishley Crab House 6:30pm - 8:00pm for you to pickup your shirts, measuring board, boat number, and paperwork.  We will have a video on during the check in demonstrating the procedures for entering fish. (These have not changed from last year)

If you do not want to pickup your items on Friday night you may pick them up on Saturday Morning prior to the start from 6:00am to 6:45am on the patio.  All teams must check in in the moring to receive the Team Id which must be in all Photos.

The deadline to text to enter photos will be at 3:00pm (same as last year)
Due to the restriction of 50 people total, ONLY 1 member of the team can attend the virtual Weigh In inside the banquet room, but there must be a member of your team present for your entries to count.

Entries are still being accepted online or at J & C Drydock Marine in Punta Gorda.- You may also register at the Friday night check in- Cash Only

Thank you for your understanding on this matter and hopefully we will be back to fully normal soon

Thank You!
