(June 14, 2019) Fish N Paddle Saltwater Slam is bringing the ultimate competitive kayak and paddleboard fishing experience to West Ocean City.

The tournament will run from June 29-30, with a minimum purse of $7,000 to be divided amongst the top three anglers.

Stop by Atlantic Tackle in the Commercial Harbor and experience fresh, local food and drink, kayak demonstrations, a variety of vendors and music by DJ Wax on both days.

Brian Roberts, co-founder of Huk Big Fish Classic, hopes to expand into different waters through kayak and paddleboard fishing.

“We are creating something else really big here,” he said. “Kayak and paddleboard saltwater fishing has always been one of my passions, and Ocean City is the perfect city to host a world class competition. I’m bringing something new to the community with a lot of activities and a great competitive atmosphere.”

Featuring over $8,000 in other prizes, no minimum number of competitors and multiple optional divisions, there are endless ways to compete and win.

Fish N Paddle Saltwater Slam is supported by national sponsors such as Humminbird, Lightning Kayaks, Penn Fishing and the NRS, as well as local sponsors such as Worcester County Recreation and Parks.
