Official Striperthon 2021 TAG

Sponsored by ODM Rods, Super Strike Lures, Lamiglas rods and Surfcaster’s Journal.

The STRIPERTHON 2021 is open to all Surfcaster’s Journal subscribers with active subscriptions as of 5 PM at 6/11/2021. There is no entry fee, as a subscriber you are automatically entered.

Only saltwater striped bass may be entered into the tournament.

All fish entered into the STRIPERTHON 2021 must be caught in a surfcasting situation. A surfcasting situation constitutes contacting the ground, rocks, beach, or a dock with one’s feet. Any means may be used to reach these destinations, such as boat, ferry, swimming, or kayaking but the fish must be hooked and landed while the angler’s feet are in contact with the Earth or something permanently affixed to the Earth.

All fish entered must be caught using a rod and reel and a legal live (or dead) bait or lure.

All measurements will be ROUNDED UP to the nearest whole inch.

All qualifying fish have to be photographed with the CONTEST TAG and next to a measuring tape showing the entire length of the fish in inches visible in the photo accompanied by a SECOND photo of the angler holding the fish. This event is intended to be a CATCH AND RELEASE competition, remember all fish must be photographed alive. Minimum size 36 inches

The largest fish by length will win first prize, second-largest second prize and so on. In case of a tie, the first entry submitted will be placed ahead of a second entry of the identical size.

You must send us your entry pictures by 5 PM on Sunday, June 13th. Email pictures to with the email heading “SPRING STRIPERTHON 2021″.  Include your name and phone contact.

Anyone caught cheating in any way will be disqualified, ejected, and publicly shamed.  This means any photo editing, unannounced substitutions, entering fish caught by non-members etc, will result in disqualification. We reserve the right to disqualify any entries in which the measurements are not clearly visible without enlargement. The SJ tournament committee will have the final say in all disputes concerning the legitimacy of photos, size of the fish, and quality of the photo submitted. Photos entered without a CONTEST TAG shown will not be counted, no exceptions.

Your CONTEST TAG must be printed at a size of 6 inches by 6 inches or larger.

You are urged to take whatever means necessary to protect the TAG. Designating a page in your leader wallet is a great way to protect the tag. It is also wise to print several extras because water and paper don’t mesh well.
