The Fish Hawk’s Saltwater
Anglers Club’s charter was established on April 6, 1977. The common goal was to
form social fishing club, dedicated to good sportsmanship, preservation of the
marine environment, and safeguarding our natural resources.
Each year since, our membership has
increased and the Club is now one of the largest and most active fishing clubs
in New Jersey, devoted primarily to fishing for a variety of saltwater species.
Expertise of members ranges from novice to expert, from fishing, crabbing, and claming in the backwaters of Barnegat Bay, to the canyons ninety miles offshore.
And if you don’t own a boat, the Club has a “ride along” program for members.
Meetings are held at 7:30
P.M. on the first Thursday of each month at the Lacey Elk’s Lodge, Beach Blvd, Forked River, N.J., guests are welcome. The agenda usually includes a renowned guest speaker and/or video presentation on fishing, marine electronics, or related topics. Current legislation in regards to marine fisheries is big on the list of discussions. The Fish Hawk’s, in conjunction with other Clubs, address
these concerns through writing campaigns and attending hearings in regards to size / bag limits, quotas, and protecting the rights of recreational fisherman.
For members, there are monthly fishing contests from April to December, fifteen tournament days for Bluefish/ Cod Fish /Fluke/Weakfish/Sea Bass/Striped Bass/Black Fish.
Social events consist of an annual banquet, and picnic.
