The Beach Haven Charter Fishing Associations' Junior Mate Reef Project Made its first deployment on January 14, 2021, on Little Egg Reef with a 140' barge a 45' tugboat and a 40 ' push boat.
This project cost $100,000. We had a 50/50 cost share with the Sport Fishing Fund to make it possible.
In September 2021 we deployed 16 reef balls on Little Egg reef and 16 on Garden State South reef. These two deployments cost us $12,800.
Last week the first of two truckloads of reef Balls were delivered. The plan is to deploy 20 reef balls on Little Egg, 20 on Garden State North and 20 on Barnegat Light reefs. This project will cost about $26,000 and again we will have a 50/50 cost share thanks to the Sport Fishing Fund.
As you can see the cost of reef building is expensive and the State of New Jersey while supportive, does not pay for procuring the materials.
All our money is donated from individuals and companies. Since the BHCFA is a 501 c 3 all donations are tax deductible.
On Wednesday June 22, 2022, we will hold a fundraising Sun Set Cruise on the Pirate Ship Black Pearl. Leaving from 100 N. West Ave. Beach Haven, NJ at 7:00 PM and returning at 8:30.
There will be a brief talk about our project followed by a DJ for your listening and dancing pleasure and a cash bar will be available.
The minimum donation is $75 and can be made along with your reservation on our website www.bhcfa.org on the Jr Mate reef page.
Please call me if you have any questions.

Reef building is a matter of two steps foeward and one back. If you're lucky.
We had a truck load of reef balls delivers in late May, but scheduling and mechanical issues delayed deployment and put the order for the second truck load on hold.
I have been informed that the repairs were completed. As soon as there is a successful sea trial efforts will be made to schedule the first of three deployments.
Our plan is to deploy 20 reef balls each on Little egg, Garden State North and Barnegat reefs.
