Heading into its 9th Year Surf Day “A Day Dedicated to the Surfcaster” has become The Largest Surfcasting Show of the Year

Lincroft, NJ (January 5, 2015) – The Jersey Shore Surfcaster’s (JSS) announces the return of the Ninth Annual Surf Day Fishing Show coming back to Brookdale Community College on Saturday February 21, 2015. Surf Day has become the largest fishing show dedicated to surf fishing in the Northeast with over 70 of the industry’s top vendors and over a dozen seminar speakers providing the most advanced surf fishing techniques every surfcasters needs to know.

This year the JSS is extremely excited to announce the two main seminar speakers will be ‘Crazy’ Alberto Knie and author John Skinner. Both presenters will be providing 90 minute seminars with extensive live Q&A sessions.

Crazy Alberto’s presentation ‘The Big Hunt Secrets’ will be an entertaining session with expert tips and secrets with a focus on the importance of conservation for our Striped Bass fishery. John Skinner who recently published his third book titled “Striper Pursuit’ will be speaking on “Condition-Based Bass Strategies”. John adds “It always strikes me that weather and water conditions often dictate how we can or should fish, and that these conditions are something we have no control over. To be consistently productive, we need to know how to deal with the whole spectrum of conditions.”

When you think it couldn’t get any better there are another 8 seminars to choose from on topics ranging from Chunking for big bass, Wetsuiting, River Fishing, seminars specifically focused on fishing Needlefish, Darters and Bottle plugs and more sessions are to be announced in the coming weeks. These seminars will be hosted by speakers such as DJ Muller, Jimmy Fee, Bill Wetzel, Bill Jakob, Patrick Perrotto, Jason Szabo to name a few.

This year you will also have 4 scheduled workshops to attend that will take place in the seminar rooms in order to get the most out of each workshop and provide plenty of space for attendees. The workshops will cover rigging and loading plugs, teaser tying, rod building and Beach Buggy 101, aka driving on the beach.

One seminar last year that was a huge success was the ‘Kids Seminar’. The JSS will continue on providing a kid-focused seminar that will be hosted by two JSS members Matt and Tim Risser. They’ll be bringing their ‘Kids First’ approach to the children with some great tips on becoming a surfcaster and at the same time providing the dads and moms with pointers on how to keep the kids interested and wanting to come back for more. Between the Kids Booth and the Seminar, each child will be given a free T-shirt


and ticket to a Kid’s ONLY Raffle for a rod and reel combo along with a grab bag full of goodies. Included will also be a hands-on workshop to let the kids play with the fishing gear and try on waders to get them started and interested in the sport.

The stellar giveaways and door prizes will continue as part of Surf Day as they are every year. Some great takeaway for some lucky winners will include a ZeeBaas Reel, Van Staal Pliers, Custom Built Century Rod, Flatlander Surfcasting Plug Bag, Custom Built Fiberstar Rod, MAK Surfcasting Plug Bag, Pelican Cooler, with over a dozen high end plugs.


Surf Day is the flagship event sponsored by the JSS fishing club. The JSS was founded in 2005 by a small group of die-hard striped bass surfcasters that put an emphasis on two things, fishing regularly and giving something back to the community.

They are an assembly of excellent independent fishermen that are good people that enjoy sharing their success and have no problem with watching others succeed. Every member emphasizes catch and release and conservation of our striped bass fishery.


This year’s Surf Day event is Saturday February 21st 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. Brookdale Community College, Lincroft, NJ.
$10.00 Entry Fee. Kids under 10 Free

    Thanks Zeno. Sent my shipping info via e-mail.
    Side note. You have occasionally humbly refenced your writing skills, educational background etc. My take…you pay attention to detail. You are the only person to send me a note of any kind and actually spell my name ( I know it’s different) correctly. See you at the shows.

    Wow, all those surfcasting luminaries in one spot. That JSS show is gonna be a bang-up time for sure! Gee, if only I wasnt gonna be sorta cash-strapped this winter, cuz it sure would be nice to cruise down there, get a room and make an overnight of it. Oh well, maybe another time. Meanwhile, I can certainly hit the Providence gig and believe me, im looking forward to it. That little state looks like it might have 2 miles of shore, but trust me, if you add up all the little crags and inlets and crazy looking backwaters, theres a bazillion places that hold cow stripers in there. Lets hope the winter breezes by, and i’ll see you in the surf some day my friend!
