Over 17,000 inches of striped bass already entered!

With the striped bass migration nearing its peak, big bass are settling into their summer residences along the coast and fishermen are looking forward to enjoying some great summertime striper action.

This year, the Striper Cup has ramped up the catch-and-release competition with more prizes and more ways to win. With 13 weeks still to go in the season-long tournament, participants have already released over 17,000 inches of striped bass!

The catch-and-release competition’s unique rules give every angler the chance to win. Entrants receive one chance in the weekly drawing for every 10 inches of fish they submit in a given week, so one only needs to enter a single 28-inch fish to be in the drawing.

To submit a fish, participants simply snap a picture with their smartphone or digital camera and submit the picture through our online form by the following Monday at noon. Up to three fish can be submitted by each angler each week. Along with the weekly drawing for Costa Sunglasses, contestants in each of the categories—boat, shore, and kayak—will draw at the end of the tournament for a Lowrance Fishfinder, Van Staal Reel, and Old Town Predator Kayak.

Plus, the anglers who total up the greatest number of inches in the shore, boat, and kayak categories will each receive Angler of the Year awards at the StriperFest on September 26 at Falmouth Harbor on Cape Cod.

With drawings happening every week, anyone can win at any time and it’s never too late to sign up and join in on the action! Sign up for the Striper Cup at
