It’s time for the Southern California tribe to gather again for this years Jack Prodanovich White Seabass Open.  The success of “The Jack” in 2013 has prompted the planning of what we hope to be another classic single fish California competition.   Early spring conditions are indicating another warm season and May looks to be the perfect time to harvest a big ghost.  Competitors are allowed to enter only one (1) fish for the entire three day tournament, so take wise shots and wait for a winning fish.

“The Jack” White Seabass Open was to commemorate the legendary spearfisherman Jack Prodanovich. Jack was a legendary fisherman, an innovator in our sport, and one of the founding members of the “Bottom Scratchers” dive club. Formed in 1933, they are considered to be the first and oldest diving club in the world. We honor this pioneer and hope you will join us.
