Q: I am a kayaker, but I like the variety of fish in the open division. If I register as a kayaker, and catch a Pompano, is that fish not going to win a prize?

Q: I am a kayaker, and I’d like all of my options on species of fish. What are my options?

A: If you register in the Open Division and also register and pay to be in the Kayak Division, you can fish both divisions. One Captain’s Bag per Angler even if registered in Open and Kayak divisions. However, one fish cannot win more than one category.  For example: If you had a large Snapper and when you weighed in, someone already had a larger snapper in the Kayak division – you could decide to enter your fish in the Open Division. Fish registered for a SLAM cannot be registered in open or Kayak as well. Fish registered in Open or Kayak cannot count towards a SLAM.
