The Mississippi Chapter of the Coast Conservation Association is sponsoring an appropriately named Stripes, Spots & Dots Tournament Feb. 22 with a guaranteed payout of $8,000.
“Stripes” refers to the dark bars that run down the sides of sheepshead, while “spots and dots” refers to the adornment on speckled trout and redfish, and the three species are among the most popular game fish found in big numbers along the Mississippi Gulf Coast in the winter.
The competition will be in two divisions for adults.
Sheepshead will stand alone and the top prize is $2,500 for the heaviest single fish. Second is worth $750 and third $250.
