The Women’s Club of the Forked River Tuna Club will host the 21st Annual Ladies Catch of the Day Fishing Tournament on Saturday July 19, 2014. We invite ladies of all ages to come out for a day of fishing and fun. The focus of this tournament is to promote fishing and recreational activities on our area waterways. Proceeds benefit the Forked River Tuna Club Scholarship Fund.
The Women’s Division offers prizes for the categories of fluke and bluefish. A special Mermaid Division for young ladies 12 and younger will award prizes for fluke, bluefish and crabs. While men are permitted to operate a boat during the tournament all aspects of fishing/crabbing must be done by registered lady anglers only.

All rules and regulations will be reviewed. Tournament day begins at 7AM and runs until 4PM. An awards Picnic will be held on Sunday July 20th at 12PM at the Tuna Club.
