AMSA Fishing Teams

Each year AMSA selects members to compete at fishing tournaments along the east coast.  Currently AMSA competes at the following fishing tournaments:

  • Ocean City Surf Angers Tournament
  • Little Hatteras Fishing Tournament
  • Big Hatteras Fishing Tournament

If you are a member and are in good standing you are eligiable to compete for AMSA.  In the 2nd Newsletter each year, entry blanks are included for you to complete and send back in.  At the June Board of Directors meeting we draw the winners.  AMSA pays for your entry to that tournament and provides you $100 in bait money.  (Notice: to fill your team of 6, two-thirds of the team must be AMSA members)
