April 27th & April 28th The Hudson River Striped Bass Fishing Derby

 

The Croton Yacht Club will be participating in this year’s Striped Bass Fishing Derby as one of the three weigh stations on the Hudson River. The event is sponsored by the Hudson River Fishermen's Association, (www.hrfanj.org), a not-for profit organization of recreational fishermen who are concerned with the present and future state of fisheries in the Hudson River. Their objectives are to encourage the responsible use of Hudson River aquatic resources, the protection of habitat and the promotion and management of sport fishing. There is a Grand prize of $100,000 with a minimum of $1,000 for the largest striped bass weighed in. The emphasis of the tournament is on “Catch and Release” and every effort will be made to release all fish weighed in alive. Proceeds from the Derby will go to benefit the HRFA and its Youth Angler program and scholarship fund. Contestants can fish from either a boat or from shore. If you would like more information or you are interested in competing in the event you can register on line at www.stripedbassderby.com.
