MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament
The South Jersey Shark & MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament Now Rolled Into One!

Overview

JUNE 9-13, 2021

The MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament is proud to announce the inclusion of shark calcuttas to add to the level of excitement with new options and target species! As we have all seen over the past several years during early June, the offshore tuna bite has been on fire, leaving participants torn between leaving the inshore sharking grounds or heading for the offshore tuna bite. So why not give participants the options to target one, the other, or both!

This June 9th through the 13th, teams can now enter into their favorite calcuttas from the South Jersey Shark Tournament and fish the extended schedule options of the MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament. This Shark and Tuna combination allows EARLIER departure times, an EXTENDED BOUNDARY and MORE time on the drift than previously available during the South Jersey Shark Tournament. Also if participants want to troll for tuna during the day and then drift for the makos overnight, all the options are on the table for plenty of action!

As for the original MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament format itself, the tournament will be remaining the same, however there will no longer be a limit on the number of boats in the tournament. So with the merge of the South Jersey Shark and Tuna Tournament, all participants should expect a record purse up for grabs for the 2021 MidAtlantic Tuna Tournament!
