Teams accumulate points over the course of the 3-leg series in the chase after the circuit's most prestigious award: The Showdown Crown. The Crown is awarded to the top overall team in the entire series - a feat that is not easily obtained. The Showdown can also be a target event for cashing big in the signature KDW Jackpot. The Rebound Fishing team collected a check for near $100,000 in the 2010 Showdown by hitting the KDW Jackpot and winning the whole tournament at the same time.
Anticipation builds all season long for what is undoubtedly the biggest prize of the PBSC season. On August 6, 2017 during the Saltwater Showdown awards ceremony, a 29 foot SeaVee complete with twin 250HP Mercury Optimax engines, Pipe Designs T-top and leaning post and a Loadmaster aluminum trailer will be awarded to one lucky winner.
