Target species in the Shootout are dolphin, wahoo, kingfish, blackfin tuna and cobia. The Saltwater Shootout has plenty to offer for the competitive and casual fishermen. Reasonable entry fees, big payouts, stellar parties and exciting activities for anglers of all ages keep the teams coming back year after year.

True champions don’t make pit stops in victory lane – they live there.
Tensions are high as the top fishing teams arrive to compete in the final leg of one of the most prestigious fishing tournaments in the Southeast: The Mercury/SeaVee Pompano Beach Saltwater Showdown.
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 and Pick 3 jackpots!
Anticipation builds all season long for what is undoubtedly the biggest prize of the PBSC season. On August 5, 2018 during the Saltwater Showdown awards ceremony, a 29 foot SeaVee complete with twin 250HP Mercury Verado engines, T-top and leaning post and a Loadmaster aluminum trailer will be awarded to one lucky winner.
