It was my understanding that the pier tournament was limited to the Okaloosa pier. I am basing this on the fact that we were told the pier staff had to verify catches and the people putting up the prizes and associated with this pier and harbor docks in destin.

you can call harbor docks and talk to Cathy at 837-2506 and see what they say

Reference the 26 mar comments.

1. We will not be updating the blog at night. When we receive reports from fishermen, it is impossible to tell when they caught fish. At this time we do not want to question fishermen that might lead to less information rather then more. All reports are appreciated and we try to pass on the best data we receive.

2. Likewise it is impossible to tell when everyone comes here. The pier is open 24 hours and we do not keep a roster of fishermen. If you are refering to friends I would suggest you contact them about where and when they were someplace.
