Newly Inducted Pro Football Hall of Fame Coach, Coach Jimmy Johnson, is making his way up north for Summer 2024 to extend his world class fishing tournament from South Florida to Atlantic City, NJ for the 4th annual event. Annually, Jimmy Johnson's "Quest for the Ring" Championship Fishing Week, Florida (JJFISHWEEKFL) is hosted in March at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's Guitar Hotel with fishing happening across South Florida featuring renowned parties, a guaranteed $1 Million purse, and entry into Coach Johnson's famed Ring of Honor, where an annual coveted championship ring is at stake. Coach Johnson has teamed up with the Atlantic City Sports Commission to add on to the series and bring this high stakes and overly entertaining competitive sportfishing experience to Atlantic City, July 14-20, 2024, hosted at the Frank S. Farley State Marina at the Golden Nugget. Over 80 boats have fished annually and we are ready to do it again for 2024. 


The theme for 2024: FISH FOR YOUR SPECIES IN 2024! As Coach Johnson always says, "COME & GET IT!” Jimmy Johnson's Atlantic City ‘Quest for the Ring' Championship Fishing Week (JJFISHWEEKAC) will celebrate the magic of Atlantic City as a destination tournament and will feature extreme competition and celebratory parties each night of the week for the teams and their guests and families.
