LEOPARD REDFISH

The Slot Redfish with the most spots (counting both sides) wins.

Must be a Slot Redfish and you CAN use this redfish in your Heavy Stringer (but you are not required to).

The number of prizes given will be dependent on the number of entrants: 50 entrants or less - 1st place only, 51-100 - Top 2 (70/30), and over 100 - Top 3 (50/30/20).

If any angler places in both the Heavy Stringer Category and the Leopard Redfish Category, the angler has the choice of either taking the cash prize for the Heavy Stringer Category or the Pack & Paddle gift card for the Leopard Redfish Category (angler cannot win in both categories).  However, if the angler opts for the Pack & Paddle gift card for the Leopard Redfish prize, the angler will still receive their Series Points for their place in the Heavy String Category (if they are an "Active" LKFC Member).  The options will be presented to the angler after the final results are tallied and before awards presented.  Based on the decision, the cash payouts or gift cards will be adjusted accordingly to the next angler who placed in the category.  Therefore, make sure to register your leopard redfish with the weigh-master even if a redfish with more spots has already been "weighed-in".
