The tournament honors the legacy of Kirk McNulty, a surfer, diver, brother, and son. Kirk was a world class waterman who was inspired by everything ocean. Although some of you may not have known Kirk we hope that you will participate as we are a small family of spearfishermen here on the West Coast. We are working hard to identify this years sponsors prior to the tournament start date, which look to be another step up from last years.
A $20 entry is required prior to spearing a fish. Register by clicking the image below. The proceeds will be donated to the White Seabass Hatchery Program led by Hubbs-Seaworld to help improve the WSB population on our coast.
Please join us in the 3rd Annual tournament to celebrate Kirk's life and passion for the sea. Winners will be chosen by Top 3 Biggest Fish. This year we have added an additional award - The Sustainable Fish Award. In order to help further the efforts of White Seabass Hatchery Program led by Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute we are given an award to the spearfisherman who turns in the most white sea bass heads during the tournament at drop off locations listed below. If the fish head(s) have been tagged an additional prize will be given and determined by the fish that has traveled the furtherest from its grow out location. See below for more info and drop-off locations. The Awards Party will be held June 11th at Tarsan in Redondo Beach, CA.

Sustainable Fishing Award - Since 1986 efforts by Ocean Resources Enhancement and Hatchery Program (OREHP) and Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute (HSWRI) have supplemented the white seabass population by 2.3 million fish with 115,000 being released in 2015. Since 1986 nearly 2000 fish have been tracked via their collection of heads from commercial and recreational fisherman. Ocean Global is looking to expand on the hard work of rejuvenating the WSB population and encourage more fisherman to submit their catch so that valuable data can be collected an learned from in order to further the gains over the last 30 years.
