Heros on the Water -The 2015 Kayak Fishing Classic at Jamaica Bay Tournament

Posted by John Mantione on

JJSPORTSFISHING is a proud sponsor of Heros on the Water and the Kayak Fishing Classic.

To empower our Nation’s warriors by providing healing and rehabilitating kayak fishing outings that are physically and mentally therapeutic through our nationwide community of volunteers and donors.


Heroes on the Water helps our Nation’s warriors and veterans from all branches of the United States military unwind using the therapeutic qualities of fishing from kayaks. What looks like a day trip of paddling and fishing is in fact something much deeper and long-lasting.

Founded in 2007, our unique kayak fishing program allows the participants a chance to decompress from the stresses associated with combat and the physical rigors of rehabilitation. Warriors enjoy these benefits while on guided fishing trips held in local communities around the country.  Read More…..

the 2015 Kayak Fishing Classic at Jamaica Bay Tournament Page

           Thursday, May 14th to Sunday, May 17th 2015, Floyd Bennett Field, Brooklyn NY.  

I’m excited to announce that the tournament has again been chosen as one of the tournaments in the United States as a qualifier for the 2015 Hobie Fishing Worlds 5 Championship to be held on Shang Lake, China November 9-16, 2015. We would like to thank all past and presentparticipants and sponsors for supporting this tournament and continuing to make it a World Class Event.


We will again target Striped Bass, Bluefish, Weakfish and Summer Flounder (Fluke), if in season.
The focus at this Catch & Release Event will be on sustainability to include Recycling and Leave No Trace practices. 

The Kayak Fishing Classic at Jamaica Bay will be here before we know it. With a extremely harsh winter, we are all ready for some warmer weather and the feel of that tug on the line. The Kayak Fishing Classic at Jamaica Bay is a great way to catch the first fish of the year and hook up with old and make some new friends, all for the benefit of worthy causes. Those of us who share the enthusiasm for the sport of Kayak Fishing know this is a premier event  that shouldn’t be missed.
