South Jersey Shark Tournament

Calcuttas

JUNE 7-10, 2017

The following information describes the various "Calcutta" levels that are available for those who wish to indulge. The "Overall Calcutta" is the traditional one that has always been offered. The "Super Calcuttas" are additional opportunities to win. Remember, Calcutta prize money is separate from tournament proceeds and you are under no obligation to enter any of these additional levels. It is strictly your option and you may enter as many as you wish or none at all. 95% of Calcutta entries will be paid out. To be eligible for Calcutta prizes, fish must be caught according to tournament rules and meet the tournament’s minimum weight standards. Percentages listed are of total purse within each Calcutta. Good Luck!
