Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilman Tom Hand announce that registration is open for the 33rd Annual Bluefish Tournament, scheduled for Sunday, September 16th.
“This all-day sporting event features hours of fun fishing followed by a tailgate party with refreshments, raffles and awards,” Supervisor Saladino said. “The event is open to anglers of all ages but space is limited, so sign up quickly.”
The tournament runs from 4:30am to 4pm. Registration is limited to the first 350 boats with entry fees discounted for Town residents. Costs to enter are $35 for residents and $45 for non-Town residents.
Councilman Hand added, “This event always proves to be a great time for participants. Anyone who registers prior to September 10th will receive a tournament T-shirt and be automatically entered in a special raffle. Residents can pick up registration forms at all Town facilities.”
Raffle prizes include Solstice inflatable boats and Mercury outboards, rods, reels, ice chests, restaurant certificates and more. In addition to plaques, winners of first through 15th place will be awarded gift certificates. Raffle winners must be present to receive their prizes.
