The 2013 Montauk SurfMasters Fall Classic is officially underway today as many of Montauk’s best surfcasters hit the surf for the 11 week competition. The tournament runs from Saturday September 14th through Sunday December 1st.
Invitation Only Tournament – Top Anglers Compete
The Montauk SurfMasters is an invitation only tournament where die hard anglers and locals of the Montauk Surf compete in Adult Mens, Women and Wetsuit division for cash prizes and bragging rights for the entire year. Some of the largest fish taken from Montauk’s surf come from the tournament members year after year.
The tournament also has kids and youth divisions which our sponsors donate tackle prizes and also help to support our youth college scholarship program where each year the Montauk SurfMasters gives several needed scholarships for our local youth whom have demonstrated good sportsmanship and academic achievements. Building on our legacy tournament of 20+ years, the Montauk SurfMaster’s was created to expand our contributions to these scholarship funds and give back more to both the local and sport fishing community.
This fall may be shaping up to be a good year with the abundance of bait in the area and a good run of large fish taken throughout August in the near shore rips and the southside surf.
