General Entry Category Announcements


Introducing a fresh twist to our summer series: the Team Division presents two unique avenues for competition. Teams can choose between the Big Bag or Big Fish Divisions, each offering a distinct challenge. In the Big Bag Division, teams vie for victory based on aggregate weight, while the Big Fish Division adds $9,000 to the general prize structure and focuses on landing the heaviest individual catch. 


Recently, in the Saltwater Shootout Team Ability cashed in on $13,474 due in large part to winnings from the new Big Fish Division. 


Additionally, all other general entry divisions—including Mid-Range (open to boats 27-32 feet), Small Boat (open to boats 26 feet and under), Semi-Pro, Angler, Family, Kids, Species, and Show Me the Mahi Divisions—are open to all participating teams.


Optional Entry Category Announcements


Heading into leg two of the series, The Kay Dee Dubya Jackpot is poised to exceed $82,000, while the Pick 3 Jackpot is anticipated to surpass $71,000.


The Kay Dee Dubya challenge presents an opportunity to snag some extra cash by landing a weighable Dolphin, Wahoo, and Kingfish during the tournament. Should no team achieve this feat, the prize money will roll over to the subsequent leg of the PBSC, steadily accumulating until a team claims the pelagic jackpot by presenting the heaviest KDW trio at the scales. The entry fee for this thrilling challenge is set at $200 per boat. For full details, consult the official rules.


In The Pick 3 challenge, three out of the five eligible species will be randomly drawn before the start of fishing. These three species will become the targets for the Pick 3 category for the day. If there’s no winner, the prize pool will carry over to the next PBSC tournament, restarting the process. Secure your chance at victory with an entry fee of $200 per boat. Review the rules for complete details.
