Catch The Beast

Welcome to Boardwalk Marina 1st annual fishing Tournament

Join us for Boardwalk Marina's Fist Annual 'Catch the Beast' Striped Bass fishing tournament Saturday, June 8th covering the Housatonic River and the Long Island Sound. This is the only Striper Tournament registered in CT to date.

This is a one day tournament and will be held rain or shine at Boardwalk Marina, 955 Ferry Blvd next to the 'BJ Wholesale club' in Stratford, Conn. Anglers can fish from a boat or from shore for this tournament which is registered with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP). Fishing will begin at 6 a.m. and final weigh-in is at 4:00 pm. All anglers will be provided with a Tournament ID tag and must be presented at Weigh-in.  If coming by boat please contact the marina beforehand to schedule a slip for the day of the tournament. Slips are limited only (20) and are fist come first serve, if there is a large turnout and some rafting maybe required. It is prefered that you come by car as there is plenty of parking.  

 Weigh-in starts at 10 a.m. and ends promptly at 4:00 p.m. An awards ceremony will immediately follow Saturday's Weigh-in, and will include food, music, venders and raffle prizes. Reminder: IF you are fishing by boat and have not entered the river by Birdseye boat landing by 3:00 pm you will not make the check in. It takes 50 mins (no wake zone) to reach Boardwalk Marina from the mouth of the Housatonic River.
