Say the one word phrase "Winning!" nowadays and Two and a Half Men star, Charlie Sheen invariably comes to mind.  Well, with all due respect, ol' Chuck's got nothing on the 4th annual New Jersey Saltwater Fisherman's banquet that was held this past Saturday at the Captain's Inn in Lacey Township.  The winners were, of course, everyone who attended the party.  The banquet is held every year to honor the members of New Jersey Saltwater Fisherman (NJSWF) and to raise money to help fund organizations who fight for our right to fish in the Garden State.  This year the support was overwhelming and the attendees raised $1350 for the Recreational Fishing Alliance (RFA)!

A record number of donations were given by some extremely generous sponsors.  As the guests arrived they were greeted by a seemingly never ending amount of prizes.  These ran the gamut from rods, reels, lures and accessories to open boat and full charter trips to Coach bags and pedicure kits for the ladies.  Said NJSWF founder Rod Houck, "I am honored and astounded at the incredible amount of support that our members and sponsors have provided to us.  Although it's a lot of hard work, the biggest problem was finding enough room on the tables to hold all the donations!"
