Dennis Kleiner from Egg Harbor Township NJ caught 10 crabs during his Assault on Patcong Creek debut, but most importantly, he caught THE crab in 2014 and was crowned Tournament Champion. In 2015, he came close to repeating as the tournament champion, but was edged out by Shawn Bulifant.
Kleiner lives on a property that borders Patcong Creek and enjoys crabbing with his daughter Ava and nephew Tim in his 14′ McKee Craft.
