The Assault on Patcong Creek is a crabbing tournament and barbecue held annually in Somers Point, NJ. The tournament is organized by the 501c3 charitable organization—Patcong Creek Foundation, Inc.—and is the largest crabbing tournament in the United States.



The event began in 2010 as an on-the-water-gathering of a dozen or so crabbing buddies, and has steadily grown over the years to include the prestigious Largest Crab Trophy presentation, post-crabbing barbecue, crab races, live music and our charitable educational initiatives.



The 2017 event was the largest to date, with more than 70 boats and over 270 crabbers from twelve different states taking part in the tournament. These numbers make it the largest crabbing tournament in the United States. More than 1000 people participated in the post-tournament barbecue in 2017.



The #1 goal of the Assault on Patcong Creek—besides having fun with friends and family, both on the water and at the post-tournament barbecue—is to provide financial support to marine-based educational initiatives.



2014 marked our first year raising money to help cover tuition costs for children to attend NJ Fish & Wildlife’s Sedge Island Summer camps. In 2017, Allison Hillman of Mullica Hill, NJ and Mason Weiss of Sewell, NJ were our scholarship recipients.
