Atlantic Canada’s premiere striped bass fishing tournament attracted over 1,000 fishing enthusiasts in 2015, its first year. This “catch and release” tournament features three divisions: Team/Boat – up to 4 people ($150 registration fee); Individual/Shore ($20 registration fee) and Youth (free). A top prize of $5,000 goes to the team that with the heaviest 4 fish (allowed to weigh in 2 fish/day).
The longest fish registered over the 2 days of competition takes the Individual/Shore division. Peter Bowman of the popular Fish’n Canada television show said “We have never experienced anything like this in our lives before,” while in Miramichi last May filming for their season premier.
Our Individual/shore division is expected to be our biggest draw with participants competing for some great prizes in a “greatest length” style two day competition. All participants will be required to photo document their catch and submissions will be posted on our website and social media sites.
Leaderboard style updates will be provided via social media and our websites to keep followers interested and enthusiasts visiting our sites to get the latest updates. Our Youth Division (16 years and under) will provide the future of the recreation fishing industry with an opportunity to experience the spirit of competition but will also form our target market in years to come by providing a premium event and experience at no cost to the youth participant.
