The Big Rock Board of Directors have revised the rule levels making it more accessible for fisherman to participate.
Level I for $2500 will now feature 60 ways to win including Blue Marlin, Release, and Gamefish. In addition a new Release Level has been added to "up the ante" on Release prize money. Participants may enter Level I and the new Level V for a $4000 entry fee or simply fish Level I...it's your choice!
Also new for 2014 is the amended rule for the Fabulous Fishermen level which states "The Winner of this level will be the first blue marlin reported and boated weighing 500 lbs. or more". This changes the rule of "first fish on the dock", making it more fair across the board.
"We are excited about the new level offerings this year and believe it will encourage more boats to fish the tournament", commented Crystal Hesmer, Tournament Director. "We really do expect to see a larger variety of boats than we have ever had!"
