Welcome to the Berkeley Striper Club Web Site. Established in 1966, the Berkeley Striper Club is one of the largest and most active surf-fishing clubs in New Jersey. Our membership includes some of the best men and women anglers in New Jersey. Our members have one common thread - the fanatic pursuit of Striped Bass. Whether you fish from the beach, jetty, boat, or kayak, the Berkeley Striper Club is for you.
The Berkeley Striper Club's objective is to promote and protect recreational fishing interests, while safeguarding our natural resources. The Berkeley Striper Club accomplishes this by being active members in the following organizations: Jersey Coast Angler's Association, Association of Surf-Fishing Clubs, and Friends of Island Beach. In addition, many of our members belong to the N.J. Beach Buggy Association, which promotes mobile beach access for fishermen.
The Berkeley Striper takes pride in giving back to our community. Each spring the club sponsors a Fisherman's Flea Market in which a portion of the proceeds go to several area charities that promote the future of our waters, forage fish, and striped bass. We also run a spring striped bass catch and release tournament in which one hundred percent of all monies raised goes to the same causes.
The Berkeley Striper Club meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Seaside Park Borough Hall, Seaside Park, N.J. On every third month (March, June, September & December) the meetings are on the first Saturday of the month. There are no meetings for the months of July and August.
