The Jersey Shore Beach N Boat Fishing Tournament

“If you build it, they will come,” and come they did! The Jersey Shore Beach N Boat Fishing Tournament is turning 3 and is already one of the largest and most recognized fishing tournaments on the East Coast.  Like in “Field of Dreams,” our plan began with a “sea of dreams.” Those dreams are becoming reality.

The Beach N Boat was designed by fishermen for fishermen and is run by marketing and event professionals to help businesses that seek to gain exposure and increase sales to the Tournament’s lucrative niche market that spends generously.  While many long-standing tournaments suffered due to the effects of Superstorm Sandy and the economy, the Jersey Shore Beach N Boat Fishing Tournament has gone from zero to hero in one short year.

The Jersey Shore Beach N Boat Fishing Tournament is a season-long, inshore, multi-species fishing tournament that challenges anglers of all skill levels to compete for cash and prizes. It runs annually from April 1 through November 30 and is open to everyone — from the once-a-year fisherman, woman and child to the hardcore sportsman. The mission is to provide a family-fun event, see who catches the largest fish in New Jersey within each eligible species category, and donate funds to help our natural resource.

Anglers may fish anywhere in saltwater in New Jersey, from Raritan Bay to Delaware Bay, from the shore or from a boat, including a kayak, canoe, private boat, party or charter boat, from the beach, from a dock, in the bays, or the ocean. Prizes are awarded for the largest catches for each recognized species for the span of the tournament and for special segments during the main tournament.

Conservation is always on our minds and the minimum acceptable weights for entering a fish are set high to limit the number of fish kept and killed for the purpose of weighing them in. All eligible species are plentiful and at no risk.

The Jersey Shore Beach N Boat Fishing Tournament donates proceeds to the Fisheries Conservation Trust (FCT), a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization created to help identify and explore issues of concern to the conservation, development, and wise utilization of coastal recreational fisheries resources.

The Jersey Shore Beach N Boat Fishing Tournament is supported in part by a grant from the New Jersey Department of State, Division of Travel and Tourism.The New Jersey Visitor's Bureau Logo
