About Simply Bassing
Simply Bassing is Long Beach Island's Spring Surf Fishing Tournament. As its name implies it's Simply Bassing! This very fun and easy striped bass only surf fishing tournament is popular for its simple format... Sign Up and then fish your favorite LBI beach! Long Beach Island is blessed with phenomenal spring striped bass fishing. Most years the spring run offers surfcasters the biggest striped bass of the year.
Simply Bassing is a low kill tournament. Its awards are based on the four biggest striped bass. Unlike the Island's Fall Surf Fishing Tournament, The Fall Classic, there are no daily, weekly or segment prizes. If your bass can not beat the four top leaders, please release your fish to swim another day or responsibly harvest for a delicious dinner.
At the end, the anglers with the top four largest fish are awarded cash prizes. First Place gets a 50% Payout ($1000), Second Place gets a 25% Payout ($500), Third Place gets a 15% Payout ($300), Fourth Place gets a 10% Payout ($200). (Based on 100 entrants)
