The weekend event included 2 days of fishing with a weigh-in at the end of each day, with dinner and an awards ceremony at the end of the competition. The prizes were based on total quantity of fish caught with multiple categories including Lady Angler, Junior Angler and the largest tuna, wahoo and dolphin catch daily.
