Welcome to Montauk SurfMasters
The East Coast’s Elite Striped Bass Surfcasting Tournament
SurfMasters brings together some of the best striped bass surfcasters for a season-long competition on Montauk’s fabled “Striper Coast”. Through a seven-week Spring Shootout and a 10-week Fall Classic, our members have competed locally in the East Hampton and Montauk waters for years, putting up impressive catches of trophy bass for the winner’s titles in Wader, Wetsuit, Women’s, Youth and Kids Divisions.
Starting in 2019, the tournament will practice catch & release only for all divisions.
SurfMasters Scholarship Fund
Our Tournament Members and Sponsors Give Back to the Local Community
SurfMasters prides itself in getting our youth involved. We have passed on the tradition of surf fishing through a Kids Division (7-11 years) and Youth Division (12-17 years), at no cost to themselves or their families. With the help of our sponsors, we have established the “SurfMasters Scholarship Fund” based on tournament participation and Awards Dinner assistance. Each year we strive for greater college scholarships while promoting the positive influence of sport in fishing.
