Id like to thank everyone who participated in our High Roller Raffle fundraiser this year. The Jersey Coast Anglers Association is a charitable non-profit 501(c)3 organization that was formed in 1981. The original objective of the JCAA, that continues today, was to combine a group of marine sportfishing clubs in order to form and promote a united consensus on issues relevant to saltwater anglers in New Jersey. JCAA works to protect the rights of New Jersey's recreational fishermen by seeking fair and equitable fisheries management. It fosters conservation and education while seeking to do what is best for our fisheries to ensure they will be sustainable for future generations. JCAA also strives to create increased angling opportunities and better public access. Further, it is involved with issues concerning our marine environment, such as fighting for better fisheries habitat, keeping our waters clean, and protecting our forage species while supporting an ecosystem-based management approach. JCAA works in concert with New Jersey's legislature, many major local, state and national organizations, congress and federal agencies to advance its objectives.

It takes a lot of money to keep JCAA as a viable organization, to keep our offices in Toms River and the costs associated with running an office. JCAA is self-funded and raises money through raffles such as our High Roller Raffle, our Super 50-50 raffle and our annual fluke tournament and sportsperson of the year dinner. Unfortunately, this year due to the Covid-19 virus we are unable to have our fluke tournament and sportsperson of the year dinner, and, as such, we will be running in the red this year. So any help our supporters can give us by participating in our raffles is of great help to the organization. Again, thank you to everyone who participated in our High Roller Raffle this year.
