Saturday Sept. 7, 2013, NJBBA held their 20th Youth Surf Fishing Tournament. Headed by Tim Burden and the many volunteers, it was one of our most successful tournaments. The weather was fantastic for the 110 kids along with their parents to spend the day together on the beach fishing. The kids signed-in and then proceeded to five learning stations, like tying knots, casting, plug identification, fish identification by IBSP Reps and the Seaside Park Rescue Team with their jet ski and rescue boat. All the children received a tournament shirt, grab bags filled with fishing items donated by the local area bait and tackle stores. When the fishing ended at 1:00 they all came back for a well deserved lunch of hot dogs, drinks and potato chips, donated by Herrs Potato Chips "Have a Heart Program". After lunch all the children received prizes of their choose and the parents even received gift certificates from local businesses. We had 1st, 2nd, & 3rd winners in all three age categories, with the tournaments largest fish being a 18" flounder. All the winner received trophies along with a surf rod and reel.
