Stuart Sailfish Club 68th Annual Light Tackle Sailfish Championship
December 9 - December 11
The most notable changes are a two-day fishing format, with the mandatory captains’ meeting on Thursday, December 9 at the Stuart Sailfish Club, followed by fishing on Friday and Saturday. Boats will be allowed to depart from four regional inlets, including Fort Pierce, St. Lucie, Jupiter and Lake Worth. Teams can submit video catch logs digitally or at drop-offs at designated locations at each inlet.
The format will be a boat tournament, with awards to the top three finishers, plus top lady and junior anglers. Only trolled dead baits will be allowed, with a maximum of two teasers and two dredges apiece. This is a 20-pound class tournament with only six lines permitted. The SLLT is geared towards non-professional anglers, but one pro per team is allowed. A new semi-pro division is being added with separate awards, although winners will not be eligible for the coveted perpetual championship trophy.
