USA Surf Fishing Team Seeks Talented Anglers for International Competitions

State College, PA — June 17, 2024:  USAngling and the official USA Surf Fishing Team are excited to announce a search for passionate and skilled saltwater anglers to join our National team.

The USA Surf Fishing Team seeks dedicated team members who are residents of the United States and possess extensive experience in shore-based saltwater fishing, including prior participation in competitions or tournaments. Ideal candidate athletes should have excellent surf fishing skills covering a range of environments, styles and skill sets, along with great casting and technical rigging skills for all levels of tackle – ideally from heavy land-based lure fishing to lighter European–style bait fishing. Starting with the prestigious Pan American Surf Fishing Tournament in October 2024, and the World Shore Fishing Championships in 2025 and beyond, the USA Surf Fishing Team will feature the best shore-based saltwater anglers in America with recruitment now open for Men’s, Women’s and Youth teams.

If you believe your surf fishing skills and experience align with the team’s needs and are excited about the opportunity to represent America on a competitive international stage, the USA Surf Fishing Team would love to hear from you via email:
