About Us

The Manhattan Cup, New York City’s biggest (50 boats), arguably most fun –and only– inshore saltwater fishing tournament.


The Manhattan Cup has become the largest one-day in-shore fishing tournament in the Northeast. Approximately 50 professional fishing guides provide their boats and expertise to individual teams competing for the largest striped bass and bluefish among three categories (fly, artificial and bait).  Proceeds from The Manhattan Cup benefit veterans of our Nation’s army forces, local charities and organizations working to protect and conserve our nation’s marine resources.

Tournament Information

Tournament participants represent a veritable who’s who of Wall St. and the “pro fishing” circuit. We expect a number of special guests and musicians to raise the excitement bar even higher (Ed Burns, Wade Boggs, and other notable entertainment and sports personalities attend!)
