Default SCMO's Participation Incentive Program

Information is very important to fishermen. We all want to know what is going on where and who did what so we can decide what to do next. But different groups of fishermen handle information differently. Some want to tell everyone so they can receive acclaim, while others want to jealously guard it so no one else will know what they know.

I think most marlin fishermen fall somewhere in between. Sure, there's that segment that guards information like it's the crown jewels, but most will share at least some of what they know if they have the chance.

At SCMO, we work hard to gather information to provide our visitors with the best possible picture of the local fishing scene, but we can't do it without you. After all, you were the one on the water and you are the one with the information. We've provided the tools to help you get that information to us, but it never hurts to have a little incentive.

Trip Reports

We hope that every time you head offshore, you'll drop by the Trip Reporter and tell us about it when you get back. It's easy to tell the tale when you are successful, and not so much if you get skunked. But all Trip Reports are valuable, no matter the outcome, and we want to encourage you to take the time to report. If you make 10 Trip Reports, we'll pay for your MNAC membership for a year, or, if you prefer, send you one of our stylish SCMO sweatshirts - standard wardrobe around the Home Office. File another 10, and we'll hook you up with another $25 worth of SCMO gear, or another year of MNAC - your call. We know you want to file the reports, anyway - we're just proficing a little incentive.

Billfish Release Board

One of our new features at SCMO is the Billfish Release Board. Our goal is to recognize every marlin, swordfish or spearfish released in SoCal. If you release a billfish and let us know the details, we'll add it to the board. What's more, we'll also enter your name into our prize drawing - for every 10 releases reported to us, we'll pick one at random to receive 1 year's membership in MNAC or $25 in SCMO gear. The more marlin releases reported, the more drawings!

But even if you don't tell us about your release, you can still win. If we find out about your release on our own and enter it on the board, all you have to do is contact us to claim it. Provide any details not included on the board, and we'll thank you with a prize drawing entry.

Now, I know what you're thinking - this sounds a lot like bribery. And you're right. We know that you want to file a Trip Report or tell us about your releases, but maybe you didn't have the time, or forgot, or whatever. Sometimes, all it takes is a little incentive ... :)

You cannot be a sportsman and not care about the fish. You can be a fisherman, but not a sportsman, and no self-respecting angler should settle for being just a fisherman.
