Forked River, NJ

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, eight tournament days for Bluefish /Fluke/Weakfish/Sea Bass. Social events consist of an annual banquet, and picnic. Annually, members volunteer their time and boats to take Coast Guard Personnel from Barnegat Light Station fishing for a day. Members can call each other for assistance or fishing reports on the Club radio channel or can contact our FCC licensed VHF base radio station located at Jim's Mobile Marine, (also a member) in Waretown who monitors channel 16. The monthly newsletter, mailed to your home, includes information on current legislation, fishing contest /tournament results, a profile of the monthly program, discounts from advertisers, and local shops and a "Traders Corner' where members can list items for sale. A wide variety of videos are available to members in the Club library. Personal "club identity" items such as shirts, jackets, hats, decals, cookbook, and patches may be purchased. Additional information can be obtained by writing to: FISH HAWKS P.O. Box 700 Forked River, N.J. 08731 Attn: Membership Director
