Mid-Atlantic fishing tournament opens Sunday

Organizers of The MidAtlantic, formerly known as the Mid-Atlantic $500,000, changed more than the name for the 2014 tournament, which is set to start Sunday at the Canyon Club Resort Marina in Cape May, N.J., and Sunset Marina in Ocean City, Md.

The MidAtlantic, which runs through Aug. 22, has a new structure that includes a reduced entry fee and more opportunities for participants to share in a cash purse that is projected to top $2 million.

"The MidAtlantic is known for spreading the money around," tournament planner Mark Allen told the Asbury Park Press. "The new calcuttas and other changes will make the tournament a richer experience for everyone.”

One of those changes is that it now costs less to participate. The entry fee has dropped from $6,000 to $2,500. The $2,500 entry fee covers all of the dockside dining, beverages and entertainment for the week for a crew of six.

Calcutta options were expanded to allow entry for as little as an additional $2,000. It is now possible to enter and win cash prizes for a total of $4,500.
