The Trifecta winner will be determined by the highest total number of points accumulated by placement in selected fish categories of Dolphin, Tuna & Wahoo. Placement in each category will be determined by heaviest weight. Fish category placement points for weighed fish are assigned by the following values:
1st - 100 points
2nd - 80 points
3rd - 60 points
4th - 40 points
5th - 20 points
All other fish – 10 Points
Participants can only receive points 1 fish in each category towards their Trifecta points aggregate. e.g. You can only receive points for 1 Dolphin, 1 Tuna or 1 Wahoo in each category regardless of the size of your 2nd largest fish in each of those categories.
The Trifecta winner does not have to weigh fish in each category. It is a point value aggregation only.
In the event that no participant weighs in multiple categories and the event is tied with the three categories’ 1st place finishers, the largest Dolphin (Winner of the Dolphin Category) will win the Trifecta.
Each species category will have a winner and will receive a payout.
Each category winner will be determined by the heaviest weight of a single fish.
In the event of category winner or placement tie (exact weight), the tie-breaker will be determined by the earliest fish weighed.
