The 4th Annual Cape May Kayak Fishing Jamboree is slated for Friday, 10/25/13 through Sunday, 10/27/13. 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.
A NON-mandatory meet and greet bon-fire meeting will be held on Friday, October 25, 2013 at 6pm, at the Lake Laurie Campground (Event Headquarters) located in Erma, NJ. (Address and info attached here)
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 3 years) Plenty of clean bathrooms, showers and laundry are on site. The staff there is awesome and is now under new ownership. 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 or would like to become a sponsor or exhibitor, please feel free to email or call us at;

The RAM Mounts team has recently added to their lineup over a dozen products aimed specifically at the kayak and paddlesports market. The company, which has been in the fishing and maritime business for over two decades, brings to the table a grouping of items that will greatly increase the amount of rigging options available to the kayak angler.
For the GoPro® user, there now exists a camera-specific ball adapter. The adapter attaches directly to the under-side of the camera, replacing the factory mounting bracket.
Date: Friday July 26, 2013 (5:00am - 7:00pm) and Saturday, July 27, 2013 (5:00am to 3:30pm)
This is considered to be a family oriented tournament. Over the past 16 years, this tournament has received outstanding recognition from anglers throughout the Tri-State area being called the #1 single port Fluke Tournament on the East Coast.
Entries have been coming in at a record pace, and the committee hopes to have another successful Tournament followed by a fun-filled All You Can Eat Awards Picnic on the Point Pleasant Elks Lodge grounds for the anglers and their families. This event is geared both for the serious kayak angler and the kayak angler who wants to learn more about this fast growing and exciting sport of kayak fishing. This tournament has become the premiere kayak fishing fluke tournament on the East Coast with more anglers and sponsors each year, thanks for your support!
