From rockers Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi to actors Jack Nicholson, Meryl Streep, and Danny DeVito, to a long list of other notable people who have contributed to all the strata of society, the Jersey Shore is also famous for what could very well be the classiest and most exciting extravaganza of its kind, that being the annual Mid-Atlantic $500,000 billfish tournament.  Anglers will gather the week of August 21-26, and the lucky ones will experience the thrill of competition without the discomfort of boat roll. With the purchase of its advanced Gyro Stabilization System, Seakeeper will pay the entry fee to one of the world’s greatest tournaments.

Seakeeper allows sportfishermen to venture into waters others shy away from, providing the chance to land more fish with more time on the water, in comfort.  Seakeeper’s powerful gyro reduces boat roll at zero and low speed, as well as underway.  The completely internal system does not impede a vessel’s speed, while eliminating fatigue and seasickness for those aboard.

Seakeeper is offering to pay the tournament’s base $6,000 entry fee for anyone who purchases a Seakeeper gyro by August 26, 2011.  The 20th annual “Mother of All Marlin Tournaments” will be hosted by the Canyon Club Resort Marina in Cape May, New Jersey, and the Sunset Marina in Ocean City, Maryland.

At both venues, anglers will have the opportunity to experience the amazing steadying effects of Seakeeper gyros.  In Cape May, a Dean Johnson 57 entered in the tournament will be available for demonstration when not fishing.  As a bonus, Seakeeper is giving away a $25 gift card to Lucky Bones restaurant for all who sea trial the Dean Johnson boat. In Ocean City, Seakeeper’s 43′ Viking Sportfish will be available for demo rides.

The inaugural Mid-Atlantic tournament offered an unprecedented upfront prize of $500,000.  Calcutta entries added up to make the tournament the first bona fide million-dollar contest.  This year’s total prizes are expected to top $1.75 million.

Whether fishing in rough waters at zero speed, trolling at low speed or running wide open to a hot spot, the Seakeeper gyro virtually eliminates boat roll.  It delivers unmatched comfort, safety and fish-fighting effectiveness—all without drag-producing and damage-prone external fins or appendages.
