  Measure and photograph your catch and submit the photo of the largest fish of each species you catch that day.  This includes catch and release species.  This means for example that you could go out several days during those dates.  You would then submit a picture of your largest fish each time out.  The largest of each species can be submitted for each time you go out fishing. Be sure to take your camera and tape measure with you.
You would submit your photos to Sam Stanchak and include your name, fish species, and whether you were fishing inshore, offshore or onshore.  This is important as we will have winners in each category as we usually do.

        Submit your photo by email address  to STANSAM26@HOTMAIL@COM or text it to 724-456-4394

               2018 PHOTO FISHING


The intent of the rules is to provide every angler the opportunity to place their catch in competition with all other anglers.  This club is proud of the honesty, integrity, and cooperation of our members.

  1. The tournament anglers and chairperson shall abide by all club fishing rules and State/ Federal guidelines for fishing in our area. 
  1. All fish are to be photographed with a measuring device clearly showing the entire fish in the photo.  Send to Sam Stanchak @ or by text message to 724-456-4394
  2. This tournament shall consist of four (4) Divisions with prize awards for 1st, 2nd, 3rd,  for on shore, in shore and off shore and an award for largest fish caught by a woman.
  • ON SHORE: The angler shall only enter fish caught while fishing from land, bridge, pier, dock or other non-boat fishing platform.  No boat is be used in any way.

  • IN SHORE:  The angler shall only enter fish caught from a boat or kayak or fishing in a area accessed by boat only.  Fishing in this division is considered anywhere other than from ONSHORE or in the OFFSHORE Gulf of Mexico waters.  Fishing in the pass to the gulf is considered a legal catch for this division. Only fish caught from a private boat count (no charters)
    • Special Note: Definition of offshore / inshore shall be as recognized on all coastal charts as the line of "Demarcation".  This imaginary line crosses all inlets and passes on the Gulf of Mexico.  Once you have crossed that line heading you have gone from inshore to offshore.

  • OFF SHORE: The angler shall only enter fish caught from a boat.  Fishing in this division is considered anywhere in waters called the Gulf of Mexico.  Only fish caught from a private boat count (no charters).

  • WOMEN'S:  A woman can enter into more than one division but can only win in one division.

  1. Anglers can enter fish in more than one division but eligible to win an awarded in only one division.

  1. Anglers using a boat may NOT enter fish in the on shore category even if caught when fishing from land, dock, pier or bridge. An example would be Don Pedro  or cayo costa, these fish must be entered into  the in shore category.
  1. Any Englewood Fishing Club Species list fish cam be entered regardless of size and are to be measured by total length or length to fork as outlined by the FWC regulations.
  2. Fish must be on the Englewood Species list to be entered as a “ legal” fish for the tournament.
  3.  This tournament encourages catch and release.  This means out of season fish (snook, grouper, snapper, amberjack, snapper, etc.)  may be measured and entered but must be released immediately.
  4. The winners of the Tournament will be determined through a point system.


  1. Each angler may measure any fish on the approved species list, regardless of season.  However, only one (1) fish per species will be scored per angler. 
    1. Example: You can enter multiple fish, on different days, of the same species, but only the longest one of all your entries will count for points.  
  1. Points awarded to the three longest fish of each species in each division.  Enter as many species as you can!
  1. In each division, the longest fish of each species is assigned 3 points, the next longest   2 points, and the third longest receives 1-point.   
  2. In each division, the angler with the MOST points from all species earns first place, the angler with the second highest points earns second place and the angler with the third highest points earns third place.
  3. Species LENGTH Tiebreaker: In the event there is a tie, then the anglers both receive the same  points for their fish. 
    1. Example:  If two anglers tie for first with 30-inch redfish, they each get three points.  The next place finishers DO  NOT move down in position, so in this example, there are second and third place points
  4. Divisional POINTS Tiebreaker: After all fish are entered in and scored if there is a tie in the total number of points for the division and in order to determine a divisional winner for the $$$, “ the angler that has entered in the longest fish of any species shall be declared the winner of that division and the next place finishers will each move down a position”
  5. Each Division except the women's  division will  have three winners based on cumulative total points.
  6. A  Top Female Angler award will be given for the longest fish entered by a woman.

    How to win: Catch fish, in as many species as       possible and enter those fish in the Tournament.
