The Striper Cup is a 5-month tournament that brings together anglers from New Jersey to Maine for competition and camaraderie – and to celebrate the beloved striped bass! Started in 2006, The Striper Cup has quickly become the Northeast’s premier fishing tournament, with over 4,000 entrants from New Jersey to Maine. With hundreds of valuable prizes awarded every week – for both kept and released fish – to anglers competing in boat, shore, youth divisions, The Striper Cup achieves its mission of uniting the diverse community of fishermen in the Northeast.


More than just the largest fishing tournament in the Northeast, The Striper Cup is an institution that unites the fishing community in celebration of fishing for the beloved striped bass.
StriperFest is the biggest fishing party on the East Coast. Over a late summer weekend, thousands of fishermen and their friends and family come to Cape Cod to take boat demo rides, check out the sponsors’ displays, eat, drink and enjoy live music. Way more than just an awards ceremony for The Striper Cup, it’s the season-capping event of the year for striped bass fishermen.
