The American Angler Classic surf fishing tournament on November 1, 2020 was a complete success even though there was a lack of fish. Want to say thank you to all of the participants and volunteers for the American Angler Classic Surf Fishing Tournament yesterday. Well over 100 anglers participated in the tournament.! Although I thought I stocked the pond, not too many fish were landed. But, did hear of a lot of large bits that were. One of the participants stayed after the tournament and landed a very large bass after the event. With that being said, First place went Jacob McGuire, a 19.25 Bluefish. I think it might have been his first or second time ever surf fishing! A small Black Drum was also landed by the same group. Second place went to Kurt Renart with a 14 inch Kingfish with less than 10 minutes left in the tournament. Kurt explained to me that he finally had a chance to cast over the bar with the wind slowing down. That's where he got the King. Good Job Kurt! Brendan Lee won the Largest Shark prize of a Holiday Tree gift card from Pine Meadow Farms with a 31 inch dogfish. I will mail that out to you hopefully this week. Unfortunately, there were no third place winner, women's prize winner and youth winners. It got kind of tough to fish as time went on. So with that situation, I will be raffling off a all those prizes this weekend to all that participated. However, just kids will be entered for the kids prizes! Just women will eligible for the Women's prize and all for the third place prize! I hope everyone had a good time and we are already thinking of next year and how to improve it.I want top thank all of these sponsors for this event!

The 2nd Annual American Angler Surf Fishing tournament on Saturday November 2nd turned over 300 anglers to the beaches of Long Beach Island. The weather was gorgeous but a bit chilly, around 50 degrees. The water was still warm around 60 degrees but a bit dirty from a blow the day before. Several species were landed that were score able. Bluefish, Striped Bass, Sharks, Black Drum, several Fluke (Summer Founder) Sundials and even a Lingcod were landed! However, a few were considered shorts and or out of season and were not eligible for scoring. All fish though, 100 percent, were released :-)
Team winners were awarded thousands of dollars in prize products. Starting with third place, the Cherry Hill Team scored a bunch of with little Aiden Ruff scoring a Bluefish to put the team in the winnings! The second Place Team goes to RH Custom Rods Team "A" with Gary Born landing the winning Bluefish at 14.5 inches. But, the first place award goes to RH Custom Rods Team "B" with Sammy Cantalano scoring several fish including Bluefish and sharks. Congrats to all of the winners
Individual awards starting with 2nd place was a tie and went to Francine Cutter and Stan Tomporoski. First Place went to Stephen Mckee with five fish scored! Congrats!
