This award is based on the cumulative results of six club tournaments held from May to October. Those tournaments targeted eight different saltwater species. Scoring is based on weight, with four points for a first place, three for second, two for third, and one point for any of the specifically targeted species entered during an NNAC tournament. This is Jan’s second time around having previously won the contest in 2012.

Jan captured the 2014 award with a total of 29 points. He scored points in each of the 6 NNAC tournaments. During the tournament season, Jan finished 1st during 3 separate tournaments for the species of Bluefish and Speckled Trout (twice).

His boat “BAY VIEW” is based out of Buzzard’s Point Marina in Reedville VA. Jan has been fishing the waters of the Middle Chesapeake Bay and the Great Wicomico River since buying his Heathsville home in 2008. He credits the club and the many knowledgeable members with helping him make the transition from fishing fresh to salt water.
