The Grand Slam Fishing Tournament is the premier fishing tournament on Florida’s West Coast. This tournament features two full days of inshore fishing for redfish, snook, and trout and has become a favorite event among master fishermen and sponsors! Highlights of this year’s event are the Steve Yerrid Kids’ Fishing Derby as well as Fishermen’s Ball. The Kids’ Derby is for pediatric cancer fighters to spend some time away from the hospital visits and treatments and simply enjoy being a kid. The Fishermen’s Ball is a resort casual dinner with high-end auctions to bring tournament sponsors and anglers together to support the research needed to find a cure for childhood cancer.

• Weather Policy – the safety of our anglers, participants, and staff is our primary concern. If inclement weather or other safety concerns arise, the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation and tournament organizers reserve the right to modify, limit, or cancel the event as necessary. 
• If you are seen fishing in a closed area, your team catches for that day are disqualified. Angling Requirements: 
• As a light tackle tournament, The Yerrid Foundation Grand Slam Fishing Tournament l requires line of maximum 20# breaking strength for fish caught using natural or artificial baits. Catch Qualifications and Registration: 
• A digital image is to be used for all photos. It is the sole responsibility of the angler to capture a clear image of the entered fish showing an accurate overall length measurement of that fi sh. 
• Each boat shall be equipped with an official measuring device. Lengths of an entered fish must be recorded on this measuring device. 
• Catch shall be laid on the device, nose butting the lower or left end of the measuring device. You may have to steady the fish while on the measuring device. Take photograph of the whole fish, making sure the nose and tail are in the photo and that size gradations are visible. 
• Once satisfied with the catch photo, release the fi sh. Handling should be kept to a minimum and should only be done with wet hands. The measuring board should also be wet for the protection of the fi sh.
• All decisions relating to angler and catch eligibility, as well as scoring, shall be the responsibility of the tournament officials.
Scoring: 
• ALL fish entries must be submitted via the iangler tournament app immediately after fish is landed. In-person entries will NOT be accepted. 
• Eligible species: Redfish, Snook, and Spotted Sea Trout. Points will be awarded only for fish caught, photographed, and released in good condition. Every effort should be made to assure the live release of all fish, which must swim away from the angler in apparent good health. Fish should be unhooked before being released unless the act of unhooking is judged to be a danger to the angler or fi sh. In cases where unhooking appears inadvisable, hooks should be clipped in half or the leader should be clipped at the hook eye. 
• Due to the nature of the contest as an all release tournament, there are no size restrictions on the length of the fish (minimum or maximum) that will be imposed. 
• Fish measurements will be judged on total length, to the nearest ¼ inch. 
• Anglers are urged to utilize hooks with barbs bent down to facilitate unhooking. When fishing with natural bait, anglers are urged to use bronze (varnished) hooks that will rust quickly if left in the fi sh. 
• This is a Grand Slam Team Tournament – it is intended that our top awards feature team Grand Slam catches and as such, each team shall present their longest Redfish, Snook, and Spotted Sea Trout for the Team Grand Slam calculation. 
• Grand Slam – This is a team category. Winners are determined by the total length accrued of the longest Redfish, Snook, and Trout entered by the team.
Prize Categories: Grand Slam (TEAM) – Most total inches for Redfish, Snook, and Trout (1 entry per species). Must catch a fish in each species. (Redfish length in inches + Snook length in inches + Trout length in inches = Total inches)
