Ocean Beach Fishing Club Kids Only Virtual Fishing Catch & Release Contest

August 20, 2021 - September 4, 2021

“Promoting sportsmanship, conservation, and inclusivity since 1946.”


To keep everyone safe from COVID-19,  there was no annual contest in 2020. Now, in 2021, we cannot ignore the rising concerns about the continued threat, even to vaccinated people.

The Annual Catch Release for 2021 is to be continued, but there will be no congregation on a specific day.

Instead catches made from the Ocean Beach marina’s docks are to be emailed between August 20 and September 4, 2021 with the following:

  • A photo of the catch from the Ocean Beach docks
  • A photo of you releasing it

By submitting photos, you agree that we may publish them.

Prizes will be awarded to those who submit the most catch-and-release entries!

In-person registration is optional. Find our table in town in Ocean Beach during these weeks to officially register, and you’ll get a copy of the original bylaws, the official 2021 patch, and a good-luck thank-you memento for this year’s contest.

The idea of good sportsmanship and conservation continues, and will be needed to continue in the times to come!

Get the patch and gift by registering at the table by the post office or visit oceanbeachfishingclub.com
