The M.V. Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby Committee strongly discourages parents from taking children out of school to go fishing. For many years we have had an unwritten rule that no junior may fish during school hours. It is unsportsmanlike to do so when all other juniors are attending school. We expect all parents to enforce this commitment to education and to good sportsmanship.

PLEASE ICE YOUR CATCH

Anglers are reminded that they may chose to keep their catch for the table or donate it to our fillet program. In either case, PLEASE ICE YOUR CATCH. We cannot use donations that are not properly cared for. Thank you!
