What’s Hot Tournament – Addendum to rules

Hello club members….as a follow up to the recently distributed email regarding the October 2020  What’s Hot tournament, the MBMC board would like to clarify the rules pertaining to the release of a Striped Marlin (updated Rules link). In the interest of promoting release for those that wish to do so, we have agreed to issuing points for any Marlin released.
With that, any Marlin released will count for 150 points.  In comparison, any gamefish weighed (whether it be Marlin or any other qualifying gamefish) will be counted at one point per pound. For example, a 170 pound weighed Marlin or Tuna will be worth 170 points and will beat out a 150 point Marlin release.

 ***Important!!! A qualifying Marlin release MUST be accompanied by the standard photo to include hand on leader with the fish in the background.

All Marlin release catches will be ranked based on time of release. First release will rank higher than subsequent releases and so on down the line.
We are hoping to build off the momentum of last month’s Marlin tournament with a good turn out for this last club tournament of the season so looking forward to seeing you all on the water.
Feel free to respond to this email or contact a board member with any questions regarding this addendum.
 Tight lines and smooth seas,
