Thanks to the strong support of our community, tournament volunteers and sponsors, and the officers and members of the Cortlandt Yacht Club, the classic sets the bar for Hudson striped

bass tournaments! This is “The Event” that has it all! A top shelf facility, high quality boat launch at Georges Island County Park,(directly in front of the best fishing for stripers at the time of year), and five minutes from a Holiday Inn

Express, and a very experienced tournament committee.

This committee is dedicated to showing everyone that they have the most efficient method possible of catching that over 40-inch striper.

Timing is everything and it has been the committee’s experience that the dates selected are exactly when ocean run bunker have entered Haverstraw Bay followed by the huge striped bass.
