15.  A participating angler that is partially or fully disable at the time the tournament may prior to the tournament, request to the chairman, assistance with the casting portion of the tournament. Meaning that if they need to have a person assist them in  their casts, they may have that person cast for them through the entire  tournament. However, it should be clear that the person assisting is  casting, is to only have cast of an average level of skill of any normal angler and not taking advantage of the "Assistance rule". Aka like hiring a pro to fish for them. However, it is the full responsibility of  the registered angler to handle the fishing rod after the cast which  includes all aspects of landing a fish. 

16. American Angler has the final decision on all matters related to this tournament.

Spreading the Word about Lionfish

This  Lionfish website was started by Roger J. Muller, Jr. in March of 2018  to spread the word about how Lionfish are destroying the underwater  marine world. Lionfish are eating all the small tropical fish, small  shrimp and lobsters. If we do not educate others to the problem no one  will know about it and care. By Lionfish hunting, scuba diving and  snorkeling, we take photos of the lionfish and write articles that will  help people understand that lionfish do not belong in the Atlantic and  Caribbean Oceans. As a scuba diver, I decided seven years ago to take up  the plight of killing as many lionfish as possible to cut their numbers  down.
