2017 Seminar Speakers Announced

We are excited to announce the seminar presenters for our 10th Annual Surf Day.

As a club, JSS makes it a point to give back to the surfcasting community. One way that we do it is by offering education through our seminars at Surf Day. This year we hand selected some of the best surfcasters around . With a wide range of topics and skill levels covered we hope the seminars will get your blood pumping and ready to take on the spring run.

In our 10th year we are bringing back two top surfcasters. Making their long awaited return to Surf Day for the first time in years are Mike Laptew and Nick Honachefsky.

Mike Laptew also know as “The Diving Fisherman” will be showing us striped bass fishing from an underwater perspective. It should be a great way to learn about striper habitats, and their behaviors.

Nick Honachefsky , a Jersey Shore surf native, will be giving us valuable knowledge about hour home state’s waters. We can’t wait to have him back at Surf Day.

Also from the Cape Cod Canal, making a Surf Day debut is Big Dave Thomashey. He has fished his entire life in the waters in and surrounding the Cape Cod Canal. If you fish the canal or want to, you won’t want to miss this.

Also coming back this year:

In addition to our seminars, you will also have access to over 75 vendors.   The best plug builders on the East Coast are confirmed along with special deals from tackle shops. You will not want to miss this unique opportunity to talk to different manufactures all under one roof. See you there!

Patrick Perrotto

Patrick Perrotto is the JSS President. He is a Jersey Shore native with over 18 years of surfcasting experience. His pursuit of striped bass have brought him to legendary and challenging waters all over the Northeast. From the jetties of Monmouth County where he first learned to surfcast to the boulder fields of New England, Perrotto loves the hunt of the striper. One of his favorite ways to search for bass is to find them in unsuspecting, seldom fished water. When not fishing, Perrotto builds his own custom surf rods.
