VSSA Tournament New Format for 2022.  We are going to a new format for the VSSA Fishing Tournament for 2022 starting January 1, 2022.  We are offering monthly cash prizes for the longest length (released or kept) for 10 different species.  Your fish does not have to be a citation fish so any size can win a monthly prize.  We are going to use FishDonkey as our platform for submitting entries.  You must be a member or affiliate club member to participate.  Check out FishDonkey for more details.  To join VSSA click here.  


The Virginia Saltwater Sportfishing Association’s (VSSA) purpose is to provide a strong voice in all matters relating to saltwater fishing and safeguard the right to fish recreationally.


The VSSA Goals:

• Unite Virginia Saltwater anglers, both recreational and charter, for all fisheries
management issues.

• Communication with all members of VSSA will be a high priority to ensure input is
dispersed and received to represent the interests of Virginia Salt Water Anglers.

• Keep members informed of all fishery related issues and represent the positions of VSSA members at the various local, state, and federal levels.

• Protect Virginia marine, boat and tackle industry jobs.

• Ensure the long-term sustainability of Virginia’s fisheries.

• Work to prevent unsustainable and damaging fishing, including fishing done on an industrial scale that damages our fishery and ecosystem.

• Support and maintain communication with local Virginia fishing clubs.
