The Hook a Cure Fishing Tournament is committed to providing a fun family atmosphere through the thrill of a competitive fishing tournament while practicing and encouraging humane treatment of the animals that provide this experience.  To that end, we have a proposed set of guidelines that would like each participant to read and do their best to follow.

  1. For the 2019 tournament, Catch & Release practices will be strictly voluntary, except where it is already Massachusetts regulation.

  2. We encourage all participants (Boats & Surf) to utilize Catch & Release tennants.

  3. We encourage the use of nets vs gaffs to mitigate stress & damage to the fish. 

The 2019 Hook a Cure Tournament will provide the following items that will be available for pickup on Thursday night and Friday morning:

  1. Tape measure

  2. Portable digital scale

  3. Placard for proof of catch (also available for download beginning Thursday night)

  4. Circle hooks to mitigate damage to fish

If the fish will not survive beyond certification, we are asking participants to NOT throw back dead or injured fish.  It is unlawful in Massachusetts to discard legal sized bass. Instead do one of the following:

  1. Donate it back to the 2019 Hook a Cure Fishing Tournament for restaurants, other participants and/or bait. 

  2. Take it home for themselves.

If you are 16 years or older, a Salt Water Fishing License is required by the State of MA. We have provided links (below) to the information if you don't have one and would like to obtain one. Hook-A-Cure assumes no liability for lack of proper paperwork on an anglers behalf.

Recreational Licenses

Saltwater fishing permit
