This is your SPRING STRIPERTHON 2014 tag. It must be included in any fish submission



I want to spend few moments today on the this weekend’s SPRING  STRIPERTHON 2014, starting at 5 PM today.

I hope you enjoy a little friendly competition. The rules , they really are simple. so let’s go over some of them.

Use your measuring tape. I would suggest the bigger numbers are better. Do not put the tape on top of the fish. We will disqualify your entry immediately. Lay it alongside of fish.

Please do not keep fish out of the water for too long. And if you are alone, self shot of you and the fish is fine. Best yet, fish with a buddy

Do not send any entries without SJ TAG being clearly visible in the picture. If we have to blow up picture in Photoshop to read numbers on your ruler or tag, it’s getting disqualified.

You must be a subscriber at no later than 5pm this Friday  to be eligible to compete.

This is basically the gist of it. For complete rules go here http://www.surfcastersjournal.com/surfcasters-journal-magazine-spring-striperthon-2014-this-weekend/

Please read them, we will not except any ” I was under the impression or I misunderstood ” explanations. You have a question, ask it here. Will we try to update the leader board over the weekend? Possibly but if we are away than you’ll have to wait till Sunday. We would like to fish too . Just because we try to do this so you boys can have fun that does not mean we can’t have a little fun, right?

So have fun while I lather myself with more poison ivy lotion..damn, I thought I was getting better until I woke up with hundred blisters on my legs this morning. This is a nightmare.

Anyway, catch some fish, please don’t make us regret doing this and most off all, have fun doing it. Yes, we all like a little spirit of competition but none of us got into this sport because we wanted to compete. Hell, catching a fish is a competition against yourself, fish and elements every time you cast a lure.

Best of luck to all

And thanks to all of our great sponsors for making this possible
