June Tournament Rundown - The Fisherman

June Tournament Rundown

The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has led to so many event cancellations in 2020 that The Fisherman’s editorial staff has had a difficult time managing our regular Calendar of Events feature.

As we’re now officially heading into the summer months, our team was able to track down a few updates to the tournament schedule for June.  Of course, due to the pandemic, it’s important for interested contest participants to call or email the tournament organizers to check on event status.

In South Jersey, the folks at Grassy Sound Marina have their 14th Annual Grassy Sound Flounder Tournament set for June 27.  Prizes will be awarded for heaviest summer flounder (first, second and third), three heaviest fish combined, and the Daisy Mae Award for 11th heaviest flounder, with prizes in women’s, youth, pier and kayak divisions as well.

For entry forms visit GrassySoundMarina.com or call the marina directly at 609-846-1400 for tournament details.

For those looking to compete along the offshore grounds, South Jersey Marina is holding strong to their 2020 tournament season calendar, with the MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament from June 17-21, another captain’s choice event where tournament teams can fish two day trips or one overnighter.  Then on July 4th it’s the MidAtlantic Cup, an exclusive winner-take-all blue marlin tournament.

Weigh-ins to be held at South Jersey Marina in adherence to the government’s “social distance” guidelines; that means the scales will be closed to the public. “Participants and spectators are both encouraged to follow the entire event through our South Jersey Tournament App available for both IPhones and Androids in the Apple App Store or Google Play, Hoffman noted, advising folks to search for the South Jersey Tournament name and logo for the download.
