Upcoming Events

The 2020 Sand Crab Classic is on March 14th!

The annual Sand Crab Classic Perch Derby is right around the corner!

While registration for the Derby itself is currently full, we hope folks will join us on March 14th for a great dinner, raffle/auction and some fish stories. This is a great chance to support MBSTP and get a handle on the wonderful experience of local families hitting the beaches to do some perch fishing.

Thanks everyone who signed up for this year’s derby- Tight lines!
