Tournament anglers can also enjoy the tastiest chicken sandwich on earth compliments of Chick-Fil-A!


**NEW ** for the Showdown, a satellite weigh-in scale has been added at SAILFISH MARINA in Palm Beach!! The addition of a satellite scale to the north is intended to make the tournament more accessible for teams to the north and help to reduce the fuel burn for all teams with the option to weigh at the location that is most convenient for them. The same rules apply for the Sailfish Marina Weigh in, teams have a 5:00 deadline to check in, and the scales will be open from 4pm until the last boat comes to weigh.


With a wide variety of prize categories including a small boat division, non-pro division, big fish payouts, and more, there will be no shortage of ways for teams to cash a hefty check at the Showdown. An awards ceremony will be held to hand out those checks on Sunday, August 14th, 2022 at the Charlotte Burrie Center from 2:00pm-5:00pm. Food will be provided from Boca Fish House and be sure to tip generously at the tournament bar with proceeds going directly to the official charity of the PBSC, Mission Fishin .
