Fishing Derby


Saturday, August 30 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
(#XP543X) | Register Online
Bayshore Waterfront Park, Port Monmouth   

This derby is open to beginner and experienced anglers. No experience in saltwater fishing? Let us teach you how to rig and cast your fishing pole. Then, join our Naturalists as they conduct free seining demonstrations and help them identify what they catch. Finally, try landing the longest fish. Participants must supply their own fishing poles, tackle and bait for the fishing tournament. Prizes are awarded for the longest fish caught in three different age categories.  Derby rules will be provided upon registration. Only fishing from the beach is allowed.

The cost is $8 per person and $4 for each additional family member.  Pre-registration is suggested; walk-ins are welcome (cash or check only on site).
