2020 SKA Tournament Trail Rules Update
As we head into the 2020 season we want to make sure everyone reads the updated rules and changes.
As most of you are aware we implemented the new 2020 Kingfish Kash Incentive program where based on the number of 100% membership teams we will pay or provide prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. The payouts are listed below based on the numbers of teams.
All team members fishing each event must be current SKA members for the team to be eligible for the Kingfish Kash incentive program. There must be a minimum of 25 teams with 100% memberships in that Division/Class to be eligible for the payout.
If members are found to be dishonest and you do not have 100% membership (and you claimed you did) you will be banned from the program.
Our TWO Boat Classes for 2020 will be Open Class and Small Boat Class. Boats 26 feet (LOA) and less will be considered Small Boat while boats 27 feet and up will automatically be classified as Open Class. Boats under 26.5 feet who wish to compete in the Open Class can elect to fish in the Open Class. Please refer to the rules for exact definitions ---> https://fishska.com/page/rules
We have also updated our Junior, Senior, Lady, and NextGen awards to state - Anglers must be a member of the team that drives the boat, angles, gaffs, or participates in catching the fish. Our goal is to get everyone involved and recognized for their accomplishments.
