StriperFest 2020 Prize Winners

StriperFest 2020 went all-online this year and it was a huge success. Congratulations to all of the winners and a huge thank you to all who participated!

The Striper Cup

Striper Cup

The Striper Cup trophy is awarded to a Club, Team, or Organization that best represented the spirit of the Striper Cup: encouraging responsible participation in the striper fishery and striper conservation.

As the first annual recipient of the Striper Cup trophy under this new format, The Striper Cup Committee selected The Berkeley Striper Club.

Established in 1966, the Berkeley Striper Club is one of the largest and most active surf-fishing clubs in New Jersey. In 2010, they decided to change their long-running Spring Tournament to a length-based catch-and-release format. It was one of the first striped bass tournaments to do so, and it inspired other clubs – and The Striper Cup – to transition to catch-and-release tournament formats.
