In addition, there will be dozens of door prizes worth THOUSANDS of DOLLARS and one lucky entrant will win this year's GRAND PRIZE of $5,000 in CASH!

We are again conducting a survey of angling success vs. effort during our annual fluke tournament. The data gathered has provided valuable insight into the success of anglers in ports from Jersey City to Fortesque. We will again offer anglers the opportunity to complete the survey on line. Click here to fill out the survey. Print out a copy of the survey so you can keep track of your catch on the form or just count and measure all fluke whether kept or released.
When you are finished fishing on June 9th simply go to the site and enter your actual data. All those who fill out the report on-line by Tuesday June 12th will be entered into a drawing for a free entry into next year's tournament.
