FYI The "Weigh Slip" is used to record either a Weigh, Release or Points. An email to weighmaster@hsfc.com will constitute an official weigh slip. It must contain the same information as on the paper weigh slip: Angler's Name, Species, Weight, Length, Date, Time and a Clear & Identifiable Picture. A Weigh Slip may be submitted for "points only", but you still must submit a Clear & Identifiable Picture. A new Club Records will be created for Marlin, Sailfish, Tarpon & Shark based on the Number of recorded releases per Year. A new Club Record will be created for Redfish & Snook bases on the Heaviest Fish caught within the slot size. A Weigh Slip may still be submitted, for "weight only", if you have already surpassed the allowed 10 Weigh Slips for a species. We encourage Catch & Release, however any fish may be kept if legally taken within the State of Federal Regulations.
