If you’re a spearo living on the U.S. West Coast, don’t forget that early registration for the 2019 edition of the Triton X Open Spearfishing Tournament closes July 31st.

This year, organizers are capping the event at a maximum of 150 divers.
The competition will take place at the Caspar Beach Campground in Mendocino, California. This year, there will be a prize awarded for the biggest Scallop. Only one Scallop may be entered per diver, and that scallop will not be counted toward the diver’s aggregate score, with only fish being counted.
Prizes will be given out for the biggest fish, for the top three most urchin collected by weight up to the legal limit, and for the largest Scallop.
Prizes will also be awarded for the top aggregate scores as follows: top five General Division, top Masters, top Woman and top Junior (17 and under).
The Perpetual Clint Koberstein Trophy will be awarded to the No. 1 General and the No. 1 Pro Division Winners. This Trophy is in memory of the first winner of the Southern California Picasso Open.
