JUNE 3-6, 2020
After 40 years the South Jersey Shark Tournament is still holding strong and true to its roots for the regions premier big game shark fishing event! As we continue to see constant changes in the shark fishing community we are glad to have our seasons regulation unchanged since last year’s tournament. Hopeful that our participants will continue to land quality fish in the scales again this year, we expect a productive and competitive event as always!
Not only is the South Jersey Shark Tournament known for big payouts and some serious fishing competition but it’s also a great opportunity to make new or catch-up with old friends across all generations. With the event setting at South Jersey Marina paired with nightly, top notch, dockside hospitality, you’ll see why our family of participants continues to grow each year. With an “All In” of Calcutta entries just under $6000 and an average purse upwards of $325,000 there’s no reason why you shouldn’t take a chance to win big in this event!
Whether you’re new to big game shark fishing or seasoned by the salt over the years on the water, the South Jersey Shark Tournament is your go to event. In our 40 years of hosting this event we have seen underdogs reign in as champions and winning fish weighed in at the last seconds. With our record tournament payouts, dockside festivities, and annual turnout, there’s no better reason than to come fish the South Jersey Shark Tournament in 2020, June 3rd through the 6th.
See you at the scales!
