About the Ike Foundation Celebrity Tournament

Tournament History

The annual Ike’s Celebrity Pro-Am Benefit Dinner & Tournament began in 2016 with bass anglers competing for a BassCat Margay top prize. In 2017, a Hobie kayak division was added, with a trip to Hobie Worlds as a top prize. The bass boat division offers anglers the opportunity to join up with some friends and fish against the pros, or they can choose to be paired with random pros. In the past, our bass boat division has featured pros such as Kevin VanDam, John Crews, Ish Monroe, Chris & Trait Zaldain, Jordan Lee, Cliff Crochet and more! Each year the tournament is held on the Delaware River (or selected portions, in the case of the Kayak division).

2018 Tournament

This year's event will be held on Saturday, July 21, 2018, with a meet-and-greet dinner and auctions on the Battleship New Jersey on Friday, July 20th. Act fast, because we have a limited number of pro angler boat registrations available!

Tournament Prizes

The top 5 in the bass boat division will be awarded prizes, including a new Bass Cat boat to first place.
