Bi-State Shad Fishing Contest

2022 Registration

Welcome to our new website, my name is Eric Fistler, and I have lived by and fished the Delaware River, my entire life. I started the Bi-State Shad Fishing Contest in 2011 after the Easton Shad tournament ceased operations. The Bi-State Shad Fishing Contest is a fun-filled family event, with something for everyone. There is a top ten payout, along with 4 daily prizes. there are 2 senior bonus prizes, a veterans bonus prize, a top 3 women’s bonus prizes, and top 5 kids bonus prizes, in 2 age groups. Age 11 and under, and Age 12 to 15. Prize amounts are determined by entry fees and sponsorship fees. Our grand prize has held steady at $20,000 since 2018. Pending approval, an 18 foot Yamaha G3 Boat, with a 90/65 Jet drive, and Bear Trailer, will be given away. Included with your registration, all contestants are entered into a drawing for the boat package giveaway. Fishing takes place anywhere on the Delaware River. Tributaries are off-limit.

New for this year, is the option for online registration. Please note that you can only register and pay for one person at a time. Follow the online instructions to choose either adult, or kids option, and shirt size. Membership to the Delaware River Shad Fishermen’s Association will no longer be included with your shad contest registration. If you wish to remain a member, you can renew at DRSFA.ORG. We are asking that contestants try to pick up your contest t/shirt, either during the contest, or Monday, April 25 6 pm, at the awards ceremony, located at the Phillipsburg boat launch. This year’s banquet will be held on Saturday, March 12 6 pm, at the Alpha Vol. Fire Hall, 1109 Lee Ave. Alpha, N.J. 08865. You can call, text, or email me to reserve your seat.
