St. Pete Open
August 19 - 21, 2016
This year, for the 51st Anniversary, the St. Pete Open will be limited to a maximum of 300 shooter registrations from individuals who are not members of the St. Pete Underwater Club (SPUC). This means that you need to register early to get your spot for the 51st anniversary of the Worlds Largest Spearfishing Tournament! Once 300 shooters enter the tournament, registration will close. The SPUC is enacting this change primarily to provide a safer, more valuable, and enjoyable experience for everyone at the SPO, as well as make the prize table the biggest and best ever seen at a spearfishing tournament!
