MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament

Overview

JUNE 22-26, 2022

The MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament is the kick-off event to the South Jersey Tournament season! Each June, the offshore waters off the coast of Southern New Jersey have some of the most productive tuna fishing of the season. As the early season eddies push in that warm Gulf Stream water, the yellowfin and bigeye bite are red hot. This year’s MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament is one way to dust off the rods and hit the canyons for some high stakes tuna competition.

Now established on June 22nd – 26th, this year’s MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament will certainly be one you won’t want to miss! With plenty of fishing format options to choose from to adapt to any last minute weather changes, this event provides the most time on the water to get that right bite. Our signature Calcutta options for the event give participants every chance to get some fish on the board and take a significant portion of the total purse.

Whether you prefer to target bigeye in the deep or search for yellowfin inside the edge, the MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament is the most versatile event to get you on the board! As the warm June weather starts to heat things up for the rest of the fishing season, be sure to mark your calendar for the MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament and we’ll see you at the scales!
