Anglers can use spin or fly gear. Three line test classes have been established with different point awards: 100 points for bonefish caught on 6-pound line or tippet, 75 points for bonefish caught on 8-pound line or tippet and 50 points for bonefish caught on 10-pound line or tippet.
Individual and team grand champion awards are to go to the top point-getters in each division. The travelers' trophy awaits the out-of-county angler who accumulates the most points.
Men's and women's, permit, new contestant, wet pants (individual and team) for wade-fishing points, and grand slam (bonefish, permit and tarpon) are just some of the other trophies and awards to be won.
