New this year is the halibut division. Very simply, the biggest halibut weighed wins. There will be prizes awarded for the top 3 fish weighed. This is a separate division that you will specify upon check in. In this division you may use live and cut bait and fish more than 1 rod at a time. Live bait can be brought, bought or caught. Fish must be hooked, fought and landed from the kayak unassisted. Final weigh in is 1 pm and you must be in line at the scale no later than 1 pm.
