CATCH, MEASURE, PHOTO & EMAIL
Welcome Ladies to the 2023 Summer Madness Online Tournament.
The tournament will be from May 27th-July 5th, 2023. All participants must be paid members of Gulf Coast Lady Anglers (GCLA). This is a 5 1/2 week online tournament. Catch your fish, put your fish on a Check-It Stik with the assigned item, photograph your fish, and then email your photo.
READY, SET, FISH!
PLEASE NOTE !! Addendum to the original Rules:
As noted, A Redfish over 27” or a Speckled Trout over 22” MUST have the tail pinched in order to verify that it is within the TPWD regulations. If the tail is not pinched the fish will be disqualified.
We have 47 awesome ladies registered for the tournament. We are excited that some of our sponsors/members are participating. With another record turnout, we were able to add a prize for 2nd place Stringer and 2nd place Flounder. Fishing can start at 12:01am tonight.
The “designated item” which needs to be in your photo will be a piece of paper (or a napkin, a paper plate, a dollar bill, or you get the idea) with the following written on it verbatim. Anything different will not be accepted. Keeping it in a baggie works well (maybe with a rock in it to keep it from blowing away). Put a pen in your tackle box right now – “been there, done that”. (See example above)

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to give me a call or text at 713-254-6515 (Sharon Stewart). We have some new ladies fishing for the first time so I expect questions. That actually helps me clarify the rules for future tournaments.
Good Luck, Be Safe, and Have Fun!
