Compete in our Weigh-In or Catch-and-Release Fishing Derbies.
If you want to showcase your fishing skills, the saltwater fishing derbies are for you. The Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF) offers two state-wide fishing derbies, the weigh-in derby and the catch-and-release derby. Awards will be given to those anglers catching the heaviest (weigh-in) or longest (catch-and-release) of each species for each of the three divisions: Mens, Womens, and Juniors (boys and girls aged 15 and younger).
The 2017 weigh-in and catch-and-release derbies are now complete! Thanks to all the anglers who participated. Click below to see the 2017 winners. Additionally, awards will be presented to Red Top Sporting Goods for being the "Top Shop", Jason Colby for "Skillful Skipper", and Frank Mazzulli for "Adult Angler of the Year."
