President's Report

(from Jersey Coast Anglers Association March 2021 Newsletter)

With the introduction of new vaccines, it is hopeful that the number of people contacting COVID-19 has started to decline. While we still have a way to go, maybe by the time summer comes around we will start to live our lives like we did pre-COVID-19. For a long time, a lot of club events and fishing charters had to be canceled because of this virus and it is about time to change this!

The JCAA is looking forward to having its annual Fluke Tournament on September 4th (Saturday) at the start of the Labor Day holiday. The Awards Ceremony for it is scheduled on September 10th (Friday) at the Resorts Casino in Atlantic City. While the details have to be worked out with the Resorts Casino, we expect to have a discounted rate for anglers to stay overnight and discounts at participating restaurants. We have always had a fun time with our Awards Ceremony in Atlantic City and so many of you have expressed to me that you want the JCAA to have it there and now we will make it happen!

Also, JCAA Board member, Paul Haertel, is working on plans to have a “Sharpie” Fluke Tournament sometime in August with an Awards ceremony at a location to be determined.

So, the JCAA is getting us back into fishing and fun at the Resorts Casino and more information about our Fluke Tournament will be announced in the near future.

Stay tuned for these fishing events to do what we anglers are supposed to do – FISH!
