A team must advance through all 4 rounds in order to win the pot. In the final round, should multiple boats release the required number of fish, the team that releases the most fish in that round will win.  Ties will be decided by whichever team released their last fish first.  If there is no winner the pot will rollover into the next leg of the Quest series where the process will start over again.  Estimated purse is based a rollover scenario from previous tournament.  Entry fee is $1,000 per boat.
