One week remains in the Long Beach Island Surf Fishing Classic, the eight week surf fishing tournament for striped bass and bluefish on Long Beach Island NJ. The front runner is still Ray Sullivan, with his 56.44 pound striper catch on October 21st.
The 56th Annual Long Beach Island Surf Fishing Classic began October 9th and runs through December 5th. Weigh in must occur within 24 hours of the catch, and on December 5th, before 6pm.
It might be colder on the beach today than it was in October, but they're out there trying to beat that 56 pound striped bass catch.
Cash awards have already been won by anglers in the daily and weekly segments of the competition, but the grand prize will have to wait until December 5th.
