The 22nd annual NJBBA Youth Surfing Fishing Tournament was held on Saturday September 12, 2015.  The weather and surf were perfect for a day of fishing.  This year 113 children up to the age of 16 participated in the event. 


The day started with all participants attening educational stations on fishing, safety and marine life.  Thank you to NJBBA members, NJ Fish & Wildlife, Jenkinson's Aquarium, Hooked on Fishing Not on Drugs, Seaside Park Fire Dept and Island Beach State Park for educating our participants.  

During the fishing portion of the event the participants entered 31 fish including fluke, bluefish, searobins, dogfish and stargazers.  

After the famous Beach Buggy hot dog lunch, trophies and prizes were awarded. 


 A huge thank you to all the sponsors and donors who make this event possible year after year. Without the very generous support of our sponsors it would not be possible for us to send EVERY child home with a goody bag, T-Shirt, full belly and a prize of their choice. Not to mention gift cards for parents and a rod/reel combo & trophy for each winner.


Please visit our sponsors, shop with them and thank them for supporting NJBBA.


Thank you to the staff of Island Beach State Park for providing the venue and helping make this years tournament a success.  And THANK YOU to all the NJBBA members who for their time and effort putting this event together.
