Optional Entry Prize Categories

Pick 3

  • Estimated Pot      $17,500

It's like the KDW Jackpot with a twist!  Similar to the KDW Jackpot, the Pick 3 targets 3 species of fish in the tournament.  But which 3?  The answer to that question comes on the morning of the tournament.  The names of the 5 target species (Dolphin, Wahoo, Kingfish, Tuna and Cobia) will be placed in a sealed container on the morning of the tournament.  The tournament committee will 'Pick 3' of the 5 eligible species in a blind drawing  The three that are chosen will be the 3 target species in the Pick 3 for that day.  If there is no winner, the purse will roll over into the next PBSC tournament where the process will start all over again.  See rules for details.  Entry fee is $200 per boat.
