This year like last, the prize for the Junior category is generously donated by fine folks from Tsunami. It consist of a 9 foot Tsunami Airwave rods and basket of lures. Not only is Airwave an outstanding rod and quite affordable but the Tsunami lures are always in my bag, I wouldn’t even dream of going to a local jetty without some shads in my pouch. So again, thanks to generous folks from Tsunami, particularly their superrep Nick Cicero on their generosity. When you pass by their booth at the winter shows, please stop by and tell them that you appreciate their support for Surfcaster’s Journal.

    #1 – He stood “toe-to-toe” with the Big Boys that day on the open beach during the Oct. 29th snow & ice blow to bag that fish 100% on his own

  2. Nicky-No-Show

    All ready voted….but, you should see the hook set pic that matches #1 for the same 13.5# fish that wasn’t selected for publishing nor his 20.9# he dragged in by himself also not published…. Sorry guys forgive me….I’m just a proud Dad !!!

    Very tough , # 1, very impressive when the fish is half the size of the person holding it, #2 is a proud young man, # 3′ bare foot on the beach with a big smile, #4 looks like he should be in a fishing show just about to end a segment on a specific topic, confident, #5, great father and sons picture. I have a son and a daughter, both love to fish, its the smile in #3 that gets my vote.

    I couldn’t be happier to see my boys on any other site on the internet – they were THRILLED. Thanks SJ for entertaining us and encouraging the next generation. It truly warms my heart to know that I’ll have surfcasting to share with my sons for years to come.

    It’s a biased vote, but #5!
