JCAA Cancels Annual Fluke Tournament

In an official statement by the Jersey Coast Anglers Association (JCAA) on August 17, the organization has decided to cancel this year’s statewide fluke tournament.

“The JCAA Board of Directors approved the recommendation of the Fluke Tournament Committee to cancel its 26th Annual Fluke Tournament scheduled for September 4, 2021,” the statement said, adding “The Covid-19 virus has dealt a huge blow to businesses and our economy in general and JCAA is no exception. Hopefully, next year we will have the virus under control and will again be in a position to hold our annual fluke tournament.”

Due to the progression of the Delta variant of the coronavirus, the number of entries as of August 17 and in consideration of the safety of all participants, the JCAA cited concerns about “about bringing a large crowd to our awards presentations in Atlantic City on September 10th,” as part of the rationale behind the cancellation.
