2022 will mark the launch of our second tournament, following the same format but held in the Eastern Long Island Sound. The inaugural Eastern Sound Tightlined Slam will be held September 30-October 2, and details around the boundaries and location of the afterparty will be announced shortly.
The fifth Annual Tightlined Slam in the Western Sound will take place a couple weeks later this year, and is scheduled for October 14-16. Both tournaments are dedicated to raising money and awareness for the conservation of our fisheries and marine resources.
Anglers compete in nine categories on both a team and individual basis, targeting striped bass, bluefish, false albacore and bonito.
The fourth annual Tightlined Slam took place October 1-3, 2021, with 25 boats and approximately 90 anglers. The tournament raised more than $30,000 to support the American Saltwater Guides Association, Keep Fish Wet, Save a Million Bass and the conservation of our fisheries and marine resources.
We are excited to launch the second in our series of tournaments, and to build on the growth and momentum to continue supporting the conservation of our marine resources and fisheries moving forward.
Together, we can transfer this momentum into results, allowing future generations to enjoy the same or better opportunities to enjoy fishing and the outdoors that we have now.
I am always happy to hop on the phone or meet up to discuss ways we can all make a difference in preserving our marine resources.
