Get signed up! Going to be a great time!

The 5th Annual Cape May Kayak Fishing Jamboree is slated for Friday, 10/24/14 through Sunday, 10/26/14. In the strictest of terms, this event is not a tournament. It’s a gathering of friends for the camaraderie found within this sport. We leave the formalities out. For this reason, we use a Jamboree (whatever/whenever/however) format. Entry fee has been set at $50.00 per person and 100% of the profits will be donated to the NJ Chapter of Heroes on the Water. Full details and Sign up can be found at www.jerseycapekayakfishing.net

A NON-mandatory meet and greet will be held on Friday, October 23, 2013 at 6pm, at the Lake Laurie Campground (Event Headquarters) located in Erma, NJ.

For bragging rights, and for those with a competitive spirit, we will be having some prizes and a few Calcutta’s. Target species will be Striped Bass, Weakfish, Bluefish, Fluke and Tautog. Individual species, Slam and Grand Slam categories will be created if voted on at the Capt Meeting.

Almost everyone stays at the Lake Laurie Campground. (We had the entire campground to ourselves for the last 4 years) Plenty of clean bathrooms, showers and laundry are on site. The staff there is awesome. If you weren’t there, talk to someone that was. You’ll be told not to miss it.

We are planning; kayak fishing clinics, sponsor booths, on the water kayak demos, and fresh water fishing within the tournament headquarters all through the weekend long event. Each participant will receive an event T-shirt and dinner at the banquet to be held on Saturday at 5pm.

If you have any questions about the event<strong> it is best to reach us in the event forum above, or our Facebook Page or if you would like to become a sponsor or exhibitor, please feel free to email us at;
