Federal law prohibits the boating of billfish

under the following size limits:

WHITE MARLIN - 66 inches   |   BLUE MARLIN - 99 inches

These limits apply to the lower jaw-fork length (tip of the lower jaw to the fork of the tail) of the fish. A billfish under the minimum size must be released by cutting the line near the hook without removing the fish from the water.

Under no circumstances may a fish not meeting the Federal and/or State minimum size limits, regardless of weight, be boated and/or brought back to the dock.

South Jersey Tournaments will not be responsible for any fine or penalty incurred by any angler who boats a billfish or tuna which does not meet the Federal and/or State size limit requirements or other restrictions. It is the responsibility of the angler to be aware of current Federal and/or State regulations regarding the catching and/or boating of the various species of fish eligible in this tournament. Fish which do not meet the Federal and/or State size limit requirements will not be eligible for prizes, regardless of weight.

*Prize money will be paid to official registrant or their designees.
