Montauk Marine Basin Celebrates the 47th Annual Shark Tag Tournament with Big Cash Prizes! This Tournament is limited to only 150 boats sign up early We offer a total purse of $50,000.00 broken into various prizes, including our exclusive woman and junior categories. We will limit the amount of boats to 150 in order to keep the tournament manageable, personal and fun for all. Note that prize money will be based on entries. Fishing Conservation is still our main concern. Montauk Marine continues to strive for greater goals and you have made these goals possible over the years with your competitive angling and responsible fishing. Once again we are proud of the several hundred pounds of shark meat that has been donated each year to Long Island Cares to feed the hungry. The increased weight limits have also contributed for fisheries conservation and we abide by these weight limits for this tournament. We thank those of you who have fished our tournament in the past and welcome all new comers to join in and enjoy the great fishing Montauk has to offer while participating in our efforts to conserve fishing as a sport as well as contributing to scientific studies.
