South Jersey Shark Tournament       South Jersey Shark Tournament Logo

The 37th annual South Jersey Shark Tournament will be held June 7-10, 2017. Hosted by the South Jersey Marina on Schellenger’s Landing, the entry fee is $600 per boat. Crews can choose any two of the three days to participate. The maximum amount of lines per boat is five, but there is no limit for members on board. Circle hooks are a requirement for the tournament as well. South Jersey Tournaments stresses conservation, and a circle hook tends to hook a shark in the mouth. This is a safer alternative to a j-hook, which can cause more damage to the shark by hooking it in the stomach. All species that are caught must comply with federal rules and regulations, but there is a minimum weight of 200 pounds for the contest.

The options for prizes range in forms of calcutta’s and high cash payouts. Last year’s payout for the winning Mako was over $176,000. Prizes are for both Mako and Blue Sharks.
