Targeted species include striped bass, bluefish, bonito and false albacore.

Each division features separate categories for fish caught from either beach or boat.

Prizes are awarded for heaviest combined weight in each division and category. Heaviest fish in each species class in each of the 4 categories also qualifies for a prize. Weekly prizes are awarded, as well.

In the Catch and Release Division, prizes are awarded based on the longest fish entered of each species.

Tournament participants do not need to attend the closing awards ceremony in order to receive their prizes.

Prizes may include tackle, Beach Passes, charters with local guides, and gift certificates from local restaurants and merchants.
