It's back and better than ever!

How do I win?

Winners for longest fish, striped bass, black sea bass, bluefish in each  category, will be announced on July 7th at our Awards Celebration at Aselton Park, Hyannis. This is a catch and release derby.  Click here to download the form to submit your catch
