For the Rules of the PB Offshore 440 Tournament as well as other tournament information, click HERE. The rules page seems to have been reworked from last year and updated with new dates. Some of the information further down on the rules page didn’t get changed from last year, however, I think you’ll get the drift of the rules and deadlines from this.

The website also has photos from last years tournament, entry forms, payout information and more. Looks like a good time for fishermen!
