The annual Snapper Derby for children ages 5–12 is held in August at Marina 1. The Snapper Derby is sponsored by the Mastic Beach Property Owners Association (MBPOA) and the Mastic Beach Yacht Club (MBYC). Anglers are asked to bring their own pole (preferably a snapper pole) and are not permitted to use a reel. Parents can bait hooks, but cannot fish. Bait will be provided. Trophies and prizes will be awarded, and hot dogs and soda will be served after each session at the Yacht Club. It’s a fun day for the kids, and for parents as well.

When: August 15th 10am-12pm

Where: Marina 1 Park with lunch at the Mastic Beach Yacht Club
