Cash prizes were based on an 80% payout of entry fees for the three (3) heaviest catfish weighed in for the contest. The anglers catching the 4th, 5th and 6th heaviest catfish will each receive a $20.00 gift certificate.

Take a Kid Fishing. A contestant may enter a child 16 years old or under in this contest for a $5 entry fee. The child with the heaviest Catfish will win a rod and reel combo. Ties will be broken by which Catfish was weighed in first.

History of Shop Local:

Shop local was started by the Lake Hopatcong Foundation in 2013 as a way to support local businesses and to encourage the communities around the lake to think of the lake as their “downtown,” creating a more cohesive community around our lake. Hopatcong Lake Regional News stepped in in 2019 to keep this important initiative running and take it to the next level.
