The Hi-Mar Striper Club hosted their first Spring Bass Tournament that would benefit Jason's Dreams for Kids, which is a local charity that grants children that are terminally ill their last wishes. The Hi-Mar Club decided to benefit this organization by donating 40% of the income generated by the tournament. The Hi-Mar Club also used this opportunity to provide the local Monmouth County Food Bank with fish that were donated by participants of the tournament. Thirty five participants entered the tournament despite the grim forecast on Saturday, through out the week big fish have been coming back to the dock from the ocean as the big fish move from their southern locations north along the beach.

The Kingfisher had their tournament crew on board to score first place with a 38.3 pound Striper that was caught off Long Branch while doing what they do best, live lining bunker. The ocean was not a pretty place to be, the forecast was suppose to be 10-15 out of the East, which it was early, until late morning when winds picked up to 20-25kts East. The Kingfisher Crew landed their big fish early, with three fish on in the first couple minutes the fish weighed 38, 36, and another 35 pound, what a way to start the day. As more boats showed up fish had moved north, toward the Rocks. Big fish were taken off the Rocks around mid morning where Phil Lidlow on the Dusky and Al Ristori with their Atlantic Yachts Sales Aquasport landed a set of 37+ lbs bass which would place them in second and third place respectively.
