Non-Billfish Doubler The tournament will double the listed guaranteed prize money for all non-billfish categories. For example, the angler landing the 1st place Tuna would receive $2000 for the guaranteed prize money plus a $2000 bonus. Each winning fish will count for only one doubling bonus. If an angler lands the 1st and 2nd place Tuna and there is no 3rd place qualifying Tuna, that angler would receive $2000, $1500, and $1000 from the guaranteed prize money plus a $2000 and $1500 bonus. There is no limit to the number of bonus categories an angler may win.
Daily Billfish Points There will be a daily cash award for the most billfish points accumulated by a boat each day. In the event that there is no daily billfish points winner on a given day, that day’s prize money will be divided equally among the other daily winners.
Level Pay Day The total purse will be divided by 5 days. Each day’s purse will be split evenly among those winning first, second or third place white marlin, blue marlin and tuna that day. If there are no winners for a particular day, the un-won prize money will be split evenly among the purses of the other days.
