More than just an awards ceremony, StriperFest is the party of the year for striped bass fishermen. You don't want to miss it!

About the Tournament

The Striper Cup is a 5 month striped bass fishing tournament that extends from Maine to New Jersey, uniting over 4,500 annual entrants and 100 participating weigh stations in a competition that celebrates the beloved striped bass fishery. Started in 2006, The Striper Cup has quickly become the Northeast’s premier fishing tournament, giving away hundreds of valuable prizes awarded to anglers competing in boat, shore, kayak, catch & release and youth divisions, and bringing them all together for StriperFest, the tournament-ending event held each year in late September.

How to Participate:

  • Register to fish in BOAT or SHORE division (or both!) Declare a TEAM affiliation to compete for the Striper Cup Trophy, or simply fish as an individual.
  • Submit photos of released fish to compete for weekly Catch and Release Category prizes.
  • Weigh in up to 1 fish per week at a local registered weighstation to compete for weekly and monthly prizes.
  • Attend STRIPERFEST for the chance to win a brand-new boat!

You don’t even need to weigh a fish to be a grand prize winner – all you have to do is attend StriperFest 2018, where all registered participants will be eligible to win the brand new Cobia boat!
