The 22nd Annual JCAA Fluke Tournament took place on August 6th. The weather forecast was for a stormy, rainy and windy day across the state but weather conditions were good, seas were calm and some outstanding catches were made. The Tournament had 262 boats competing in 9 ports. The 10 port prizes are listed below.

The largest fish weighed in was 10.28 lbs., 28.5” and was caught by Harvey Karp from Kearny, NJ and weighed in at Jersey City. Harvey will take home a cash prize of over $13,000! Nicholas Luciano of Hillsdale, NJ had the smallest fish qualifying for a port prize weighing in at 1.87 lbs weighed in at the Sandy Hook port. All the winners from each port are listed below.

The Jersey City port had the largest fish and the largest average total weight.

This annual tournament provides funds to help the Jersey Coast Anglers Association continue its fight for sound management of our fisheries and our marine environment while seeking to protect or enhance fishing opportunities for our recreational anglers. For example, we are currently fighting to stop sand mining of Manasquan Ridge and other offshore lumps.

The Clarion Hotel in Toms River is the host for the 22nd Annual Jersey Coast Fluke Tournament Gala Awards Ceremony. The Clarion Hotel invites tournament entrants to come and enjoy their facilities both before and after the awards ceremony. You can meet JCAA Executive Board members and representatives from our sponsors.

This is your chance to win the boat, motor and trailer Grand Prize. In fact, 18 of the last 19 Grand Prize winners did not weigh in a qualifying port prize fish in the tournament. Someone from your boat must be present to win the Grand Prize and any of the dozens of great door prizes.

We want to thank all tournament participants and especially our sponsors for making the tournament a success. Our nationally known sponsors include Yamaha Motors, G3 Boats, Tica Fishing Tackle, Canyon Reels, Costa Sunglasses, The Fisherman Magazine, Interlux Paints. The $1,200 First Place Port Prizes were sponsored by Fisherman’s Headquarters (for Long Beach Island), South Harbor Marina (for Barnegat Bay), Hoffman’s Marina (for Manasquan) and the remaining ports by the JCAA. Jersey Coast Fluke Tournament T-shirts and hats will be on sale as long as supplies last.
