JackPot Rules


HOW IS THE JACKPOT HANDLED?  The pot will be $25.00 per person on trips up to 5 days, and $35.00 per person on trips over 5 days, which is collected at the time of sign-in.  No one will be allowed to enter the jackpot after the boat sails.   $5.00 goes to the trolling jackpot the remainder will be divided to the heaviest fish as follows:  50% to the first place, 30% second place and 20% to third.  If one person has more than one fish in the top three then that person may collect for only one place.  In the case of a tie, the tieing fishermen will decide what to do.  All fish in contention will be weighed on the scales in San Diego.  All decisions are final.  All fish are eligible for the jackpot except sharks, rays, black sea bass, marlin, sailfish and fish mutilated by sharks or seals.  Trolling fish DO NOT count in the main jackpot.  There is a $5.00 trolling jackpot that is part of the jackpot when you enter.  A winner must fight and land his own fish, with no assistance from others except by a crew member.  The crewman may only take the rod from the fishermen to help him get untangled from any condition that is beyond the fisherman's control.  In the case of a broken rod or reel, the fish may be handlined in by a crewman and still be eligible for the jackpot only if the fish is at color.  In the case of a dispute the captain's decision is final
