Thumbs up New Catch and Release Striper Tournament

The Hudson River Fishermen's Association will continue it's tradition of offering conservation focused catch & release striper events this spring to raise money for their youth angler programs including Hooked on Fishing not on Drugs.

On May 6th they will be introducing a new event for fishermen in the Raritan Bay and Harbor area. It will feature 3 weigh in stations. One at the Atlantis Marina in Staten Island, one at Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City and one aboard the Atlantis Princess Party Boat. A first prize of $5,000 will be awarded to the angler catching the

largest striper of the tournament, with a Lowrance GPS/Fishfinder unit

for second place. The angler with the largest live release will win a

beautiful engraved trophy, while the HRFA member catching the largest

bass will take home $1,000.

The event gets underway on May 5th at the Captains meeting in Liberty Landing. All fishing will conclude by 5:00 PM May 6th and the awards will be given out later that evening in Liberty Landing. This promises to be a big event with some major media attention.

The entry fee is still only $25 per person. $40.00 after April 30th, 2006. Just go to www.stripedbassderby.com and click on the May 6th event to see all the details and sign up.

Event proceeds will go youth programs, scholarships and the environment. Go to www.hrfa.us for more information. The HRFA is a 501c3 non profit organization.
