The Jersey Coast Anglers Association Fluke Tournament is coming up statewide on Saturday and provides a unique opportunity for all those entered to win valuable prizes even if they never weigh a single fish.
There are seven regions to choose from, and seven prizes in each up to $1200 for first. Many of the most expensive prizes will be drawn for at the June 17 awards ceremony in Resorts Hotel & Casino, Atlantic City — including the boat, motor and trailer grand prize.
The entry fee for a boat with up to six anglers is $175, and for another $25 you can take a shot at the doormat fluke prize of $50,000 for the largest over 12 pounds.

The ocean was rough today, and tomorrow doesn’t look good with south winds at 15-20 knots with gusts to 30 plus showers. Capt. Ron Santee has canceled with his Fishermen from Atlantic Highlands until Friday.
Yesterday’s photo of the doormat fluke had info included when I downloaded it, but it didn’t show in the blog. The angler was Jared Goldy, the fluke weighed 10.2 pounds.
I tried copy of a report from Bill Klimas, but lost everything. Please try again.
Chuck Many said striper fishing was tougher yesterday as bluefish were hitting his eels, but some big bass were released from his Tyman out of Highlands.
